I waited ten years to get this shot!

Over the years I had tried multiple compositions to photograph the Normal Heights neon sign. The only composition that would work would be to stand in the middle of the street. Hmm? A long exposure shot standing in the middle of the road at night with cars flying by. Not going to happen.

Until that evening.

I got lucky when a Starbucks supply truck pulled up and parked in the middle of the street to make a delivery. I simply got in front of it and used it as a makeshift barricade to protect me from the traffic behind me.

Patience pays off!

I took a similar photo of the Hotel del Coronado a couple of weeks ago, but they didn’t have the Christmas lights on. I went last night (12/29/2016) and I captured this. This will probably be my last photo from Coronado for 2016 so wishing you and your family a very blessed new year!

“Balboa Park December Nights without the Crowds!”
How did I take this photo of the courtyard in the House of Hospitality without the crazy crowds of December nights in Balboa Park? Did I spend 100 hours in Photoshop cloning out people? Or did I simply shoot this on Thursday night (12/1/2016) when the park is much quieter and there are tons of open parking?

What do you think?

If you enjoy my photography I do sell prints. Check out my portfolio at:

"Skating by the Sea at the Hotel del Coronado – San Diego, California"

The Hotel del Coronado is spectacular to photograph anytime of the year, but in December the entire hotel is adorned with Christmas lights. In addition, the hotel sponsors special events such as ice skating on its oceanfront Windsor Lawn. All this makes for beautiful photographs to add to this special time of the year.

Merry Christmas my Google+ friends!
