The clouds and fog broke, split, scattered and evaporated today, for the first time this week. To celebrate, a large number of San Franciscans seemed to get the Friday Flu a day early (well, tomorrow is Valentine’s Day; they probably planned to take that day off as well). The temperature in the Civic Center area felt like 70 degrees F; the City had just finished installing new soil and grass, so why not give the turf a workout?
I used The 30 Shot for all of these, and one thing I’ve learned is that the technique works best on distant subjects because I have a much better chance of getting the shot (all of these pictures are cropped, but I didn’t use any filters). I discarded about two-thirds of the pictures I took today because the subject was too close and I either missed completely or the angle looked weird.
Of course, some people were stuck working:
