Hallelujah at San Francisco’s Cliff House

Hallelujah - San Francisco - 2014

Here’s another shot from my Saturday visit to San Francisco’s Cliff House. As I walked over to this overlook, this guy was working out on the terrace below me – shadow boxing, jumping jacks, he had a beautiful routine – enjoying his space just above the Pacific Ocean.

I captured this shot with my Fujifilm X100T – the first of a couple I tried – as he was doing his jumping jacks routine. I love the juxtaposition of him with the water below – and the seagull in the middle right of the image. I opted to leave it in color – in fact, to enhance the color a bit to better match what I remember.

Solo at Ocean Beach

Solo - San Francisco - 2014

Here’s another view along San Francisco’s Ocean Beach shot from the viewpoints just south of the Cliff House. This is a beautiful spot on great mornings like this – being able to look right down the beach from this perspective.

This image was shot with my Fujifilm X100T with the TLC-X100 teleconversion lens installed. The TCL-X100 changes the focal length from 35 mm equivalent to 50 mm equivalent. It was helpful to have a bit more reach for this shot. The tonality is straight out of the camera – nothing else applied.

I love the surfer, how he’s positioned at the edge of the light with his footsteps fading beyond!
