La Jolla really is a beautiful place. The pelicans were flying one or two at a time, I was taking photos, got bored, and let my camera drop to my side. Then all of a sudden they bum-rushed the place. My camera jumped back up to my eye in a natural motion, my hand finding the focus ring, snapping it into place as I made the shot. I don't want to go off on a rant about how manual focus is better, but it just is. It makes you feel like a real photographer when you can compose an image the way you want and not just focus for the center of the frame like the camera wants.
