En route to shooting some of the other photos I've posted previously showing early morning sunrises over the Santa Barbara coastline I walked along streets and under streetlamps that had a eerie, ghost-like quality to them. It's a little spooky, to be honest. I've never really liked being alone in the dark so I can't say I like the feeling but there is something cool about the way the street looks shrouded in the mist or fog of an early morning marine layer just a few hundred yards from the ocean.
Across the street is a little coffee shop getting ready to open for the day. If you look closely there's someone sitting in front of the shop just past the bikes. I didn't notice him until well after I was done with this shot and was moving on. Not sure if he slept there or was waiting for the store to open.
