Ocean Beach (in San Diego)


This is the street at the end of the Ocean Beach Pier. It was about 10pm. We stayed at a little B&B on Narragansett Street. Very cute place.
Unfortunately, Ocean Beach is under the takeoff path for the planes at San Diego International. At 6am.


















I wanted to try to use my camera in manual mode. It's a Minolta Dimage*, and I've had really good luck with it. Except that the battery cover's about to break, it's a great little camera.

This is my brother and my niece as we walk toward the ocean.

















Here I rested the camera on the handrail and pointed it toward Sea World. I love the sky in this one.


















Walking back down the pier. I like that all the photos have a different color.



















I had the camera strap around my wrist because the ocean was a loong way down, but it was resting on the railing. I accidentally pulled the strap as I pushed the button.










* I bought it in 2003 and I've taken it on all of my trips. It can take some really good shots, and almost all of the photos that I post are from this camera.

The different colours are from the different colour temperatures of the light sources. The orangy ones are incandescent, the greeny ones old-fashioned fluorescent, the bluish ones are natural light.

Mostly.

It's interesting what you can get if you go outside the normal boundaries. My favourite is the one where you moved the camera.
