Holiday on the beach

Photos from February 15, 2015.

I turn the ever-boring “Stretch-X” workouts in P90X on the rest days into excuses to go running. On some days, the time and place fall in line with a holiday, in this case President’s Day weekend on a beautiful late-afternoon in San Francisco.

How lucky I am to live in such a place that I see this on my weekly run!

What’s so amazing is that I don’t have to carry a camera with me because camera phones have gotten much better. Just five years ago, the only time I could get a photo like this was if I bothered to go cycling instead and bring my pocket camera. Now I can do it all, and do it in camera.

What’s crazy was there was no post-processing needed. Though I must confess I used the app Pro HDR to take the photo because I was not pleased with the saturation and sharpness in HDR mode on the built-in camera.

(I wish I had upgraded to Pro HDR X beforehand. Then I would not have ghosting in the foreground. :-()
