This image is of one of the streetcars in the car barn at the Western Railway Museum just outside of Fairfield, California.
I shot this image using my iPhone 5 – and post-processed it totally on the iPhone using the Dramatic B&W application. When I took the shot, I got lucky to be able to light up the headlamp of the camp – thanks to a reflection of natural light coming in from the far right. That light in the headlamp makes this shot – without it, it’d just be another streetcar image!
As I was walking along the Embarcadero this morning, that beautiful Milan F-line street car passed me by. Truth be told, I almost walked right out in front of it – but fortunately I looked left and avoided what would have been an awkward collision!
AS it zipped by me, I pulled up my Nikon D600 and shot this image – looking into the morning light. I post-processed this image using a combination of Topaz Simply 4 – to remove details – along with a trip into Lab color in Photoshop.
Doug Kaye and I spent another couple hours shooting around Justin Herman Plaza and Embarcadero Center before heading to lunch at one of our favorites: Slanted Door in the Ferry Building.
