472 – In Circles

I am more than a day behind now. The problem is, that something new and amazing is brewing up, and I am a tad short of time at the moment 🙂

There are two images for today (well, Monday that actually was. Grumble!), and let’s begin with this one. It may have a story, but I’m not sure which one. A woman opening a door, a sign directing pedestrians away from her, and then this overly bright and bluish light??? Sigma 70/2.8 at f2.8, 1/100s and ISO 3200. Some Photoshop treatment 🙂

Had I known more about the story behind #1 (which actually was #2 chronologically), I would have made it Image of the Day, and then maybe not. The bicycles were just too sweet. You know I love bicycles as a subject, and these two perfect circles leaning on straight lines, the composition with the lights of Café Raimund in the background, the slants, this is so geometrically rich that I impossibly could have dismissed it. Sigma 70/2.8 at f2.8, 1/100s and ISO 1000. Noise was higher than to be expected from that ISO, because I have severely pushed the foreground and completely re-lit the scene after the fact. I could have used flashes while being there, but then I probably would not have taken the image at all 🙂

The Song of the Day is “In Circles” from the 2000 album “Silence is Sexy” by Einstürzende Neubauten.

  1. It’s the magical pool of light at your lady’s feet that turns this study into a stunner. Great work but… wait…. it.. is.. not.. SLANTED! Uh-oh… you did not go out with your cowboy boot on one foot and a sandal on the other ??? :}
