I Left My Heart........

..........In San Francisco

A lazy, hazy, late afternoon, spent walking along the water's edge.  Lighting was not so good for photography, but saw this photo op, so pulled out my camera anyway.  There were tons of other people around this couple, but as I was standing there noticing how aesthetically pleasing the meandering 'stream' was in the foreground, the couple in the middle ground and the Golden Gate Bridge towering in the background, all the other people walked out of my composition, and I used that split second to snap the picture.   (Because of the lack of contrast and neutral tones of midday, I used a Lightroom preset to add a bit of additional snap and color.  HDR would not have been a good choice here.)
