When shooting street photography in San Francisco, we try to look for interesting “stages” – places where the background is interesting and we’re just waiting for the “actors” to show up and fill the stage.
Some of my personal favorites along San Francisco’s Market Street are the Muni streetcar stops. The stops are in the middle of the street – so they’re a bit closer – and the “actors” are often focused on what’s coming – looking up the streetcar line.
This is a classic example – with the “actors” sort of evenly space waiting for the Muni streetcar to arrive. Just one of the many street photography stages of San Francisco!
