This one is from a few nights ago at Cypress Point Park. The plan was to take photos of planes coming in and landing with the sunset colors behind them. What a photo op that would have been. But the winds caused a change of runways at the airport, and even then I came away with 676 photos to go through. So here are a few of the sunset, just a little late. Let me just say that I got distracted by two boys tossing a football back and forth. I was hoping to capture the action of throwing the ball. Then when I reviewed the photos I was very excited thinking since it looked like a bird had thrown my shots. They were potentially nice shots, this was the only one that I could have cropped to not show the football. I left the boy in this shot just to remind myself to keep my mind on what I’m doing.
But there were lots more sunset shots, ones without footballs…And I couldn’t help but watch another photographer in action. I wouldn’t enjoy doing portrait photography. If I’m taking pictures that turn out to be disappointing then I’d prefer that the only one annoyed at me is ME!
