Matson Building

San Francisco

I'm posting a number of images taken on Christmas. I'm moving this week and will check-in as I can.

On today's image:

The light here was magical. There is no way I could have captured this image on any day except Christmas. The traffic through here on most days would have made setting a tripod here a death wish - to capture this without a single moving vehicle - impossible.

This is The Matson Building at 215 Market Street - built for Matson Shipping in 1917. Another view of this building - tomorrow.

The pastels in the sunlight are very nice. The mix of sunlight and shadow must have made it difficult to deal with different color temperatures.

The light is indeed wonderful....and how lucky you were, to be able to go out yesterday with your camera, to places that ordinarily would be too crazy to even approach.....i'm jealous of that !!! On to a new carnival for me tonite........found it by accident coming home the long way on thursday....hope the rides look a bit different than the one that was here a few weeks ago!!!

Your right the light here was really nice and you got a crisp, interesting image. Nice eye.
