Well, Tuesday was one of those days with many images made, peeking in different directions, trying this and that.

For lack of time I’ve processed only two of them. The first, a graffiti on the wall above a post box, saying “Blood”, caused me to go slightly over board photoshoppically. “Wiener Blut”! Well, it’s a bit cheesy 🙂

I really like the second one. I stood there in the park, trying to use the trees for some good verticals, and when I saw the couple coming along, talking lively, I pre-focused and waited for them, just to get into the right position. This is 1/15s at f8 and ISO 2500, thus I knew they would be blurred, and it came out with just the right amount of motion. The guy’s posture is perfectly theatrical as well. Of course you can’t predict that. You can only click when they are where you want them, and whatever they do at that time is what you get. Consider me lucky 🙂

The Song of the Day is “We Better Talk This Over” from Bob Dylan’s 1979 album “Street Legal”. YouTube has a 2000 live version of this song. It’s audio only, but WOW!

  1. ISO 2500? wow, there is pretty much zero noise!

    I really like your photos, and I like how you describe the conditions of taking them and your thoughts as you did so.

    Great Blog!
    🙂

  2. No luck there, friend. Standing there all pre-focused and ready to go!

  3. Jen, I shall write about noise in the next post. Thanks for the compliments.

    Paul, as I’m sure you still stand there, finger on the trigger, I can only say: hold on to it. Luck will be yours 🙂
