Photographs Through Windows

DSC_0026

As an avid photobug, I’m always trying to get some unique shots.  I spent the past weekend in San Francisco, CA which is a unique and historical city.  I stayed at the Westin St. Francis on the eighth floor.  I was there to attend and speak at Bloggy Boot Camp, which was being held on the 32rd floor of the hotel.  There were no observation decks at the hotel, so I had to try my best and take some photographs through the windows.  I think I succeeded.  The main issue you need to think of is FLASH: turn off the flash, and the photographs should turn out pretty decent.

I took the photos above through windows in the hotel, but I also captured some great photos through the windshield of the car.  I was not driving, but the passenger in a 2011 Lexus LX570 SUV, which Ciaran had for a review.  The windshield was full of bug splatters and road dirt, but I still got these great shots, while moving!  This is why I love using an DSLR camera…

Disclosure: Ciaran had the 2011 Lexus LX570 SUV for review purposes. These are my own opinions and I wouldn’t send it back if Lexus happened to throw one on my driveway in the future.

Wow - you really captured San Francisco well in your photos! I am right across the bay and rarely go to S.F. - I have no idea why I don't go more often - I love it! Your photos are crystal clear and I am so jealous!

Nice pictures. :) Are you going to do another post about the horrors of taking photos in rooms with way too many mirrors? :)
