San Francisco Coit Tower One Blue Evening

Give it time

I took a lot of pictures from my balcony during the week I spent in San Francisco this past winter. Initially it was hard for me to choose between them because I was too close to them. I remember I particularly had to do some work to get the nighttime colours looking right on this.

It is only with the passage of time that you can really decide between your best pictures. Here’s how to give yourself the best chances:

* take fewer pictures
* throw more away
* once you are down to your few best, treat them as such

How do you know what to keep? Easy. Ask yourself, if this was on my wall would I be tired of it in a month?
