Pop Pie at Night

T long-delayed ophthalmologist appointment finally occurred today. That meant massive dilation to check my optical implants. My pupils were massively large, such that the iris in each eye rimmed so thinly that my best analogy is the muted corona around last month’s total solar eclipse.

As such, I spent most of the day indoors, hiding from sunlight, and only ventured outside after dark—and what a glorious evening, too. Mild: 16 Celsius (61 Fahrenheit). Despite temporarily impaired vision, I brought along Leica Q2 Monochrom.

I stopped at Meade and Park to capture the Featured Image; Pop Pie is diagonally across the intersection. I shot at a slower shutter speed so as to blur motion of moving vehicles. Look closely and you will see two cars passing. Vitals, aperture and shutter speed manually set: f/1.7, ISO 320, 1/8 sec, 28mm; 8:40 p.m. PDT. San Diego neighborhood: University Heights.
