In the morning, I drove from North Beach to the office in Ocean Beach, and from the highway, I could see a layer of thick fog splitting the city in half. So when I arrived to work, I grabbed my Nikon and snapped some photos quickly before the fog dissolved.

Then on my way home, I drove to Tom Ham’s Lighthouse and pulled my cruiser over to the side of the road. I set up my tripod and took the shot below. It was just to practice and learn about night photography. This is a pretty classic place to take photos in San Diego, and I hope to find a way eventually to look at my new city in a way that no one else has before. Those will have to come later.
