167/365 - the camera's only job is to get out of the way of making photographs.

| Ken Rockwell |

a frustrating day trying to get a suitable shot for today. i took a walk into Piedmont Park, and while there are a million different awesome places and things to shoot, i still havent quite gotten over my timidness to set-up my tripod and camera in front of a giant group of people and start photographing myself.
i did manage to get a shot off tho, but i wasnt super pleased with it... you'll likely see if after the 365 is done, and i start giving you alternates and outtakes.

in the park i saw someone who had hired a plane to fly around dragging a banner asking his gf to marry him. i didnt know people really did that.

anyway. after my stroll in the park, i strolled to starbucks and on the way, walked by this marble wall, and without any aiming, and a quick ISO tweak got this one, and when i saw it, i knew i had it.


as it was meant to be seen.

i dont feel like this got much attention on my stream. i dig the way this came out. mostly because i worked hard on getting the color i wanted just right, and also it looks like its textured with a really rad texture, when in fact, its not textured at all, its just the reflective surface. i'd pay to get my hands on a texture like that tho.

365 - 3.21.09
