Tourist Walk

My wife had an event downtown and I offered to drop her off... and then pick her up later. Ha! This gave me about 3 hours to walk around with the camera... by myself (rare). It was fun to get out and roam around. Nothing too creative. Just trying to make sure things are in focus and get a good exposure. Pretty-much everything is in the f/8 to f/11 neighborhood (which is my tendency) using short focal lengths with the 20mm or the 24-120. Kind of a "travelogue" set... but figured folks might be interested... and also encourage them to "play tourist" in their own local areas (like I did). I tried to whittle things down, but still, quite a few images (~20). I took a break at 7:30 PM (grabbed a grocery store sandwich) before driving down to the port for the last 3 shots -- then made a mad dash back downtown to pick up my wife around 10:30 PM. Fun.
