Backhoe on Construction Site

Chapter 32

Here's the photo for chapter 32 of Runoff with quote:

"The hanger-sized brick building I remembered was gone. The only thing left was a gaping hole. Ten species of construction equipment ringed the pit with buckets, shovels and loaders dug into the earth like dinosaurs feeding."

This shot was very difficult to get. I needed a night time shot of a backhoe in a excavated construction site. I found the perfect site South of Market in San Francisco, but a chain link fence ringed the area. I had to cram the camera through a break in the fence, and to compensate for the low light, do an exposure of well over a minute.

The next picture is for chapter 33, the final one in the book.
