I spent a few hours in the very late afternoon and early evening on Sunday wandering around Balboa Park with my new Fuji X-E1 and a couple of lenses. It was bright and sunny, and a little cool, a perfect afternoon for a walk. The Park was crowded with people enjoying the nice weather.
The late afternoon sunlight, especially this time of year, is particularly nice for photographing the buildings.
Just as I was getting back to the car to head home I looked up and saw this - the just about full moon rising in the east. Of course, that meant dinner would have to wait. These shots were all taken hand-held, since I completely forgot that I had my tripod in the back of the car.
One last shot - a family out for an evening stroll, with the Moon rising up above them.
