Night Photography in San Diego

Panasonic GF-1, Panasonic 7-14mm f/4, 7mm (14mm equivalent) f/8, 2.5 sec, ISO 100

I find people in San Diego love to talk about their great weather…and with good reason! Tonight was perfect for a walking tour of downtown and the Gaslamp Quarter. The city was truly alive with engaging street performers at every corner, mouth-watering aromas from nearby restaurants, and jovial chatter of others also enjoying the night. I happily explored the neighborhoods with a tripod over one shoulder and a camera over the other. I grabbed a classic shot at the entrance to Gaslight Quarter and stopped here and there to frame what I thought were interesting compositions. I don’t know how successful I was, but I sure did have a great time!

    Really nice images. Just got the GF1 with 20mm and the the 45 – 200. I have the 14 – 45 on order. Love the camera and was wondering about the 7 – 14. Your shots are striking. Thanks!

      Peter, thanks a lot for the comment and stopping by. The 7-14mm is wonderfully sharp from corner to corner. I couldn’t recommend it enough.

    Very vivid images. They really do capture the still, and the motion, of downtown San Diego at night.
