Half Hour Before Sunset on Mira Mesa

I had to do some shopping errands after work and was noticing the quality light.  It was half an hour before sunset and during this time of the day the sun casts long shadows and produces warm highlights.  A good opportunity to practice some photography at a strip mall.

I had swapped my camera back with my co-worker so I no longer have the Leica Q but instead have my m240 back with Summicron-M 35mm.  I haven't been shooting with this lens lately but I am reminded today of it's quick focus, light weight and the super sharp images it produces.  Another gem in the Leica M lens line up.  Then again are there any that aren't?


I would have been content with the Target sign alone but the women in red pushing the red cart with the red fire door sign (that I noticed after importing to Lightroom) were all bonuses.



They have some good dim sum in push cart style.



I really like the quality of light during this time of the day.  Everything seems to have a warm glow.



The red card passing by in the foreground made a interesting addition to the photo.



I shot two photos in this scene.  The first was straight with the women in between the two trucks but the sun casted a silhouette that I thought was too distracting.  So I decide to share this one which was at a slight angle.



The last shot of the day with the last bit of sunlight.  This one was with the 50mm.

Thanks for visiting.
