Anyway, here are some of my shots today.
I played with shadows some and knocked out Shadow Shot Sunday a day early, but that's okay because Harriet, the host of SSS, lives in Australia. They are way ahead of us on the international date/time line so it's probably already Sunday there....in the year 2011 or something.
The shadow of the light post above reminded me of the neck from the Martian ships in the 1953 version of War of The Worlds.
I also toyed around taking reflection shots. The first one my favorite from today. I set this up for about 5 minutes, trying to get the best angle and nailed it on the first shot. I took this using my 50mm prime lens. If you can't tell it's a reflection by the backwards wording, look at the bottom, just left of center and you can see some window cleaner bottles in the window.
I practiced framing shots within the frame. Some were better than others.
I worked on composition as well. I absolutely LOVE 127. As soon as I happened upon this scene, I knew it was going to be worth almost getting hit standing in the middle of the road to take the photograph.
And finally, some just because shots....
DOH! How did I clip off the top of the damn building??????? I was in such a hurry to get the shot while keeping an eye out for the oncoming traffic that I blew the shot. Cute place though.
An accurate depiction of East TN life. In fact, I dance just like the guy in the middle wearing the red shirt.
I adore photos that start a story in my head when I see them. I wonder who had an appointment with Shawanna at the City of Knoxville last week and for what purpose? Did they make the meeting or did losing this note blow it for them? Inquiring minds....
Hope you are having as much fun as I am this weekend.
