Downtown Pittsburg, CA – Project 365

Today I went downtown Pittsburg to take some more portrait shoots. Since the corner of East 5th Street and Railroad Avenue has some nice stone work, which serves as entrance to a small park, I used some of that as the foreground for capturing the northern part of Railroad Avenue. I also utilized in the last photo some of the decorative grass as foreground. This last photo is what I consider my best picture so far in my efforts to use the vertical (portrait) orientation for landscape photography.
