There was some really great “golden hour” light streaming into my dining room last weekend. These flowers on the table were glowing, and one flower was lit up much brighter than the others. It turns out that the camera didn’t quite capture what I was seeing. The dimmer portions of the scene turned quite dark… but this flower still stood out from the others.
I closed out the summer in Wildwood NJ with the family. We arrived right after the hurricane, and practically had the place to ourselves for the first few days. I also learned the meaning of “Going Ham” and “Come at me bro!” which were plastered on t-shirts on the boardwalk.
I got off the subway one stop early to take some shots on the way to work. This was the best one that I took. I find myself cropping my shots much more since i’ve been using the GF-1/20mm. I’ve got nothing against cropping, outside of losing pixels. Sometimes it’s just impossible to get the symmetry or composition you want straight out of the camera.
