Impressions of San Francisco


My company sent me to San Francisco for two days of training connected to the big JavaOne Conference going on all this week. I won't bore you with the details of Software Engineering training, but I did want to share some photos from my wandering in-between sessions.


I actually found it kind of difficult to get good photos here. Everything I shot felt contrived, boring, like a tourist snapshot. That's when I kind of let go and starting playing around with motion and blur to try to capture the feel. The results were something completely different than what I usually shoot, and I liked that. I especially had fun playing with the lensbaby that threw most of the scene into chaotic disorder, much how the urban landscape felt to me at the time.


It was a fun trip, and I look forward to visiting this place again that is only a couple of hours from where I live.
