Those of you that live in cities like Paris, Madrid, New York, Monte Carlo and San Francisco, probably won't understand what it's like for the rest of us who struggle every day to make our cities look, shall we say more "photogenic". Putting a positive spin on our hometown is why we are all here. Heaven knows if you want to see the seedy side, folks can just open the newspaper or click on the tube! Last night when leaving the museum, I realized that this waterfall between the Birmingham Museum of Art and the Boutwell Auditorium, not the most glamorous by day, had taken on a very dramatic look when lit up for the evening. It reminded me that maybe I need to be out and about more at night. The Minneapolis DP delegation is my inspiration!
Not as sharp as I would like, but it was hand-held, braced on a wall. f/5.6 , shutter speed 1/8, 34mm, 800 ISO for you photojunkies out there. I am sure there were numerous setting errors. I am sticking with my usual excuse - haste and in this case- darkness.
The Tune du Jour is "Twilight Time" by the Platters.
