2010 Advent Calendar - 25 of my favourite images

18. Santa Rita Pl. San Diego, CA. October 19, 2010.

Normally, I would walk down to the lights at Pacific Beach Drive. But when I came out of the front of the hotel, I looked across the main road and straight down this street - Santa Rita Place. There was no time to walk to the lights - the sun was barely peeking through the clouds as it was setting and I wasn't sure how long it would last. I looked both ways and ran across Mission Boulevard. Once across, I hurried down this street, shooting as I went.

Starting here, I took nearly 200 shots in the next 15 minutes. I'm not sure if I noticed the skateboarder rolling through when I took this, but when I did see him after downloading the card, I knew I liked it.
