The Other Side of Monte Carlo – Stuck in Customs

The Other Side of Monte Carlo

Manual Focus

Here’s a new technique I’ve been doing for the last year or so… now at sunset and night, I only do manual focus. I don’t completely trust the autofocus at night… and since I’m using a mirrorless camera, I’m guaranteed to get a sharp shot if I zoom into 100% while manual focusing.

Daily Photo – The Other Side of Monte Carlo

Or maybe this is better described as the main side. When we stopped here in Monaco, we had an uber drop us off. He asked where we wanted to be dropped off, and I just said, “The Harbor where all the boats are.” Then he told me there were two of them, and I had no idea. I picked the wrong one… I picked the one that is more boring and there’s really not much around it. I MEANT to go to this part… but, in the good news category, it gave me an excuse to climb this mini-mountain to get this shot right after dinner.
