>Well I think it is no secret that I don’t really know what the hell I am doing with this blog other than experimenting. A little advice for fellow novice photographers, a little self critique, with some random thoughts thrown in.
Oh mythical reader, hope you’re enjoying this.
I wasn’t too sure what I was doing when I took this shot either. I just ducked in under some blossoming trees and used them to frame one of the towers of a vertical lift railroad bridge. As it happens, I rather like the result. There wasn’t much I could do about the sky, the sun was behind the bridge and clouds were building rapidly, so everything is a gray wash. But I rather liked the muted light…. sometimes you trade one thing for another.
