Just for Fun #3

Greenhouse Bikes

I liked all of the lines in this scene. The sky was a beautiful blue, and I put my polarized sunglasses over the camera to darken it down even more (a great little trick, sunglasses make a good ND/polarizer in a pinch for your phone or point n shoot).


A bit of a happy accident - the bulldozer came into the frame during the shutter lag. It looks a bit like the backhoe and dozer are fighting.

This one is very "street." I wanted it with just the girl on the left, but the other person walked into the frame while I was shooting. I think it works, not quite as well as it could have, but I like the motion.

More lines. The random mini-fridge totally made this shot, IMO. Exposure is probably a touch dark - that's the pain joy of shooting with an automatic camera.

I'm liking this "just for fun" thing. Thanks again to Kristan for suggesting I make it a more regular deal. What do the rest of you think? Do you like some commentary on each one, or should I just leave them alone?

  1. I like hearing commentary about what you were going for, especially when it ended up changing, lol. I agree that the "street" shot would have worked better without the 3rd girl. I LOVE the first two shots.

    All of these are a bit different from your norm, and I think they work well!
