Where: San Francisco, CA
Between Meeting: On My Way to a Video Edit Session
I was editing video at the San Francisco Film Centre in the Presidio and staying in Nob Hill. I would take a different route to the Presidio each morning and one day headed straight down the hill on California St. to Grant Ave.
Grant Ave is the main artery in Chinatown and I gave myself an assignment to capture Chinatown without showing Chinatown.
When a bus drove by at Grant and Broadway, its windows reflected the awnings of the businesses on the street. Not being a great action photographer I missed the shot. I decided to wait for the next bus that would stop for passengers so I could have 10 seconds to find the best composition and make sure I had the right depth of field to keep the reflections sharp.
