Say, Sunglasses

November is surprisingly sunny and pleasant this year in San Diego. Yesterday, when I captured the Featured Image, temperature reached 23 degrees Celsius (73 F). Tomorrow starts the weekend with promise of low twenties C through Thanksgiving and forecast of 26 C (78 F) for Black Friday shopping (where I won’t be).

The discarded sunglasses set on a cement wall along Meade at Mississippi in my neighborhood of University Heights. Are they police issue, by chance? I ask, wondering if someone from Monday’s armed robber-SWAT standoff left behind the eyewear (hey, better that than forgetting—whoops—rifle or tear gas grenade).

Leica Q2 can be manually focused by turning a ring that wraps around the f/1.7 Summilux lens—my technique for both shots. The first is the original, presented as composed. The second is a close-crop, meant to again demonstrate the magnificent detail that the camera can capture. Vitals, aperture manually set: f/2.8, ISO 100, 1/1600 sec, 28mm; 9:46 a.m. PST.
