So there’s this street in San Francisco.
At the intersection with Mission Street, we call it Duboce (“Doo-BOHSS”). At the intersection with South Van Ness, only one block away, we call it 13th Street. Same street, different name. So while I took pictures of skateboarders on Duboce, only a few minutes later and only a few blocks away, “the photographer as crocodile” lay in wait at a new spot on a different street which happened to be the same street, awaiting silhouettes like a Darwin Saltie. Not that I actually intended to eat anyone, of course.
First I found a simple yet dramatic background.
And then, patience. Finally:
I wandered a little bit and found two more interesting scenes.
Interesting Challenge for this week; forced to think a bit and use my imagination.
