Photo: The Angles of Muni

While I was in San Francisco, a sizeable chunk of the photos I took were of San Francisco Municipal Railway equipment - so that I'd have plenty to sort through for the currently in-progress Tunnel Visions post on the Muni Metro system. While there I also started a more experimental manner of taking photos; rather than carefully line things up through the viewscreen, I started holding the camera below waist height, aiming it in the general direction of what I wanted to take a picture of, and seeing what came out. This also has the benefit of not being as obvious as holding a camera up to your face.

This was one of the first times I tried it, and I think it worked. It's an L Taraval train passing through Taraval and Lenox, about to turn into West Portal Station. That's a pretty cool station design right there, incidentally.
