After the rain - Tilt lens monochrome

Today I took my trusty Edge 80 tilt lens with a plan to do some monochrome photography in the rain.  Unfortunately the weather did not cooperate as the skies cleared and there was not a drop in the air.  However, it was still awesome to notice all the little things that make San Francisco so unique: a bicycle lock on a nautical wheel on the wall of a yacht club; a man drawing "star signs" with a chalk rock; a pair of skateboarders showing off on the Embarcadero; a mossy step leading to the Bay; patterns in the architecture of the Lefty O'Doul Bridge as well as the vista to the Bay Bridge.  By the way if you are wondering, street action photography (the skateboarders) with a manual focus tilt lens shooting at wide apertures is extremely challenging.
