Great Wide Open

Posted on Thu 5th Jan, 2006, 10:26pm

ISO: 100, Shutter speed: 1/160, Aperture: f/8,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Sigma 18-50mm F2.8 EX DC, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 5th January 2006, 9:52am,

My journey to work was unusually productive this morning. To start with, the road I walk down to the station was bathed in lovely orange light, which had me reaching for my camera. Unfortunately there wasn't much of interest, although I may end up posting one of the pictures.

The rest of the journey was equally surprising. I just kept noticing things I liked the look of. Guess it was just one of those days.

This shot was taken on the train. I was aiming to get the scratching on the glass in focus and didn't even notice the dirt until I looked back at the pictures just now. But there's something about that I like. It's like dirt's just a part of life and never even gets noticed.

There's also a partner shot to this one that I'll post tomorrow. So if you don't like this then don't bother checking the blog until Saturday :)

Nice - I love the background

It's cool babes, well done. Reminds me of retro California - can imagine Lassie, flares and rainbow belts in the distance.

I'm with Bex on this one. Looks like the background for a 1950's ice cream billboard/sign. Might even shop it up to show you what I mean :) Do i get to call you babe? No? Too weird? Sorry honey

Well I'll take y'all word for it. Can't see the fifties thing myself. Shop it up, crinkle chops.

One of my fave images - really good. I like the unusual detail and it suggests a bushfire (or California too). Might pass on the babe aspect but wltm :D Methinks it'll be great if you undertook a series of window images.

For some reason my first thought on seeing this, was "The Wonder Years". Nice shot!
