2014 Photography Challenge- A Moment in Time (6:00 p.m.)

Due to a crazy busy schedule, I ended up taking my photo one day later than Cyrena and Sarah. But, I really loved the contrast of the a.m. and p.m. photos for this particular set. I was set up above the Pacific Coast Highway, accessible only a few minutes away from my home in Santa Monica, watching the cars drive by. When I was there at 6:00 a.m., I knew that I was going to love seeing this with much more traffic on the street. Here's what it looked like at 6:00 p.m.:

I've learned to get myself to my photo location with at least five minutes to spare so I can line up the photo just so (hello Type A personality). And I was really happy with the accuracy of the photo. I also really love how the time of day lent itself to the many different lines and shadows you see here.

And here is 6:00 a.m. alongside 6:00 p.m. (click to enlarge)

Five things I noticed between the two photos (which is sometimes my favorite part because it's my own personal game of Photo Hunt!):

  • Far fewer cars on the PCH at 6:00 a.m.
  • I love the lights lining Palisades Park at 6:00 a.m. and how you can't even tell that there are light posts at 6:00 p.m.
  • Not a single cloud in the sky at 6:00 p.m.
  • I must have taken the 6:00 a.m. photo on trash day because there are a handful of trash cans that aren't anywhere at 6:00 p.m.
  • And finally, the California Incline is way more visible at 6:00 p.m. At 6:00 a.m., you could miss that it's even there unless you know to look for it.
Check out Cyrena's photo and read the funny story that goes along with capturing it:
