Shot of the day, kind of a slow photo day.

I love this picture, despite how terrible it is. I only had a few seconds to fire off a few shots of my coworker while we were waiting for our rides.

I flipped through a couple of differant options on the camera, and this is the best I got. I wish I had a steadier hand. There is another shot of him lighting his cigarette that would have been cool as hell if it hadn't been so shaky.

I love the way the light plays off of the cement balls he's leaning against, but I also don't like the bilboard in the background. Of course, The billboard kind of captures a little something of cinci. Which I've decided is a major goal of mine as a photographer. I want someone who views this blog to get a feeling for cinci. and what it's like to live here.

anyway, for my own purposes the camera settings on this shot were:
1/50s
f/4.5
Focal Length 40.0mm

I have lived in Cincy all my life. I am sad to admit that billboards are a reoccurring theme when driving along the major highways.
