It’s our kind of winter, anyway.
Actually, we had a big storm roll in during the night. Once the clouds move on, the temperatures will drop appreciably. Lows in the 30s. Now we’re getting somewhere.
I made this picture when we went to the Krewe of Joan of Arc parade. You know. I rarely just photograph what I came for. Even as we were trudging along, I kept looking. And seeing. A little. This picture is certainly technology-driven. I’ve been working with a new lens. It’s designed for the camera. Even though it’s a little slowish for my old school standards — its maximum aperture is f4 — it seems to pull in light from every place. The shadow detail in the upper floors of the building is very good. And, that’s in the dark of night, when I really don’t like to work so much.
I wasn’t sure about this picture. But, once I started working on it in post production it sort of grew on me. Now I like it. I hope that you do too.
