    While I was in San Diego for a wedding and catching up with friends, I managed to break out of my photographic rut of taking pictures of deserts, cacti, and sunsets. :dance3:
    My Pentax SMC 50 1.4 got the nod as the fast lens on this trip.

    I enjoyed being a +1 for our friend's wedding

    My friends have a curious boy that was fascinated by my motorcycle.

    This gracious couple were sharing a romantic moment in perfect light at Mission Bay.

    Although not a proper portrait, I captured this couple in fading light just south of Carlsbad
    DSC05680-1-L.

    Great shots all.
    Question, in #4, love the starburst from the car headlight - was that the lens or PP?

    Thanks Hawkman!
    The starburst is from the lens (haven't really thought about adding them in PP).

    Yeah, it my town as well for a while. I was in South Park (between North Park and Golden Hills). Nice to go back to old haunts.
