Ready for Action

ISO 1600 50mm f/4 1/250sec

I really enjoyed coming across this shot! There was just so much to the scene that I absolutely loved! The worn yellow paint on the steps adding to the story of time that takes place within the frame. Of course I loved the crumbled loose bricks adding the extra level of grunge and a sort of mysteriousness as we are peaking around this corner, I am almost tempted to continue moving my body to see what more there is to offer around the rest of this wall. And of course the protagonist of the story the bold eagerly awaiting fire extinguisher.

Its as if the fire extinguisher is just peering out of the window ready for its chance to be the Hero. As red as the color of Supermans cape… or underwear (but thats just weird), this guardian is keeping watch over the streets of his town, awaiting for the day he will come to rescue and bare his mighty ability, to distinguish a tall flame with a single blow.

Im not sure when his day will come, but I feel more at ease knowing he is watching over the streets of Downtown. Thank you bold hero… Thank you.. .. .. *tear*.. *bow*… *curtain*.. Nailed it

Candle Magic

ISO 100 27mm f/11 12sec

I love switching things up and trying new things. I was stuck in the studio (design) today working on some flyers for the annual charity Gala we have coming up, so I didn’t get a chance to go on a photo walk like I normally would. Which gave me a perfect excuse to get creative tonight and experiment with light painting/drawing. I’ve been wanting to give this a whirl (pun intended) for a bit now, but just haven’t taken the time to do so. Its refreshing to bounce from searching for something beautiful and creative to then going and creating something creatively beautiful.┬áThe great thing about these types of photos is you have no clue how its going to turn out when your creating it. So theres already elements of curiosity, wonder, and surprise when your painting with the light.

To me this photo looks so magical, like something straight out of a disney movie. Its almost as if the candle is changing into something, like it has a secret night life and disguises itself as a candle during the day. Which raises the question.. what would a candle be if it could choose to not be a candle.. hmm. Maybe a fire extinguisher, that would be ironic.
