San Francisco City Hall During the Magic Hour (Weekly Photo Challenge: Juxtaposition)

Standard

Good Afternoon:

At 5:00 on Friday afternoon, I saw perhaps 50 people in the Civic Center photographing City Hall juxtaposed against the western sky during The Magic Hour. I numbered among them; who can blame us? Just for fun, I’ll eschew the usual color photography for something that will leave something to your imagination.

But I did not stick around for sunset. I chose the nearest highest point in the City closest to my home that presents a decent vista of the west.

Because sometimes, you don’t want to juxtapose something human when it will just get in the way of the view.

  1. I’m sure the folks in the northeast and midwest are resenting the heck out of you at the moment Vonn Scott :-) Here in the south we too have some lovely sunsets unimpeded by snow and ice! Well chosen for the challenge!

    • Dear Ms. Schell: They won’t resent us this summer when they have all the water they need while we suffer from what the Governor has officially classified as an “Extreme” drought. Vonn Scott Bair
