I was in San Francisco and Napa for ten days in October. The first three days were at a photography workshop.
Some of the take-aways were to include people more often (don't wait until they walk out of the frame) . . . include details that provide a sense of the place you are visiting, and . . . "get in closer." Here are four of the pictures I took during the workshop, trying to incorporate these goals into my pictures.
I need a lot more practice . . .
Chinatown music store, with a customer trying out an erhu -- a Chinese fiddle with two strings. He was a skilled performer, a willing photography subject and the music was ethereal.

Sorry, no "sense of place" here, but I thought she was a pretty cool kid. When I asked her "Look that way" and then "Now look over there," she adjusted as if she had been modeling her whole life.
