Okay, I may have watched too much Narnia this week, but I love this photo. Truly. And that's all that counts, right? ☺ It's atmospheric, double exposurery, has a bit of added bokeh, and a light in a far window. I took this during a snowstorm as I watched my daughter's friend and her little daughter walk down the street toward home. I felt conflicted about taking the photo without this gal's permission, too. A couple of years ago, I told her all about it and she actually gave me permission to use it. Phew. No guilt.
Then yesterday afternoon, I took these shots. I had to resort to using the snow setting because the snow just blew the light out...no color to be found. There's the mail carrier.
The school bus heads up to school. This is the same scene using the "snow setting" and minus the scurrying mail carrier.
She's back! These photos were taken over the course of twenty minutes or so. The mail carrier now heading up the street.
I used the top of my car as a tripod. I have clearer photos of the background and cars stopped for the bus and all that, but you know me, I vastly prefer some interest over quality and, since I don't usually achieve both at the same time, this one turned out to be my favorite, even though the only thing in focus is the tree branch laden with snow. (I'm not sure that sentence is long enough.) Note the mail truck! That may bring me extra points.
If you have not joined Donna's Personal Photo Challenge before, please consider it. She provides wonderful lesson material and a good, fair critique of the photos shown. It's great fun!
