January 10, 2021 — San Francisco, California
Hard to believe this was shot in the city of San Francisco and not in the cold, cold North.
Also hard to believe I overlooked this on my first pass through the shots. (Well, not that hard to believe. There were almost 2,000 shots.) On the second pass though, it jumped out at me.
And I thought, “I’m looking at a theater.”
This is a hand-held long exposure shot. That’s why it looks more like a painting. All the streaking is very much intentional. Very little post-processing on this other than to emphasize or deemphasize some tones a little bit here and there. What you see is pretty much what I got. Yes, it’s a color picture.
This is for Gary Zweig.
