Grab Shot

As in, grab the camera and take a shot cause that plane is going to pass by in a second and that light is really cool.  This while I was heading into a store to pick up my dinner while working in Boston.

It's been a pretty miserable winter here in New England.  Almost every outdoor assignment is accompanied by winter light.  Flat.  Dull.  Gray.  So I got excited when I noticed the buildings of the South End lighting up with the warm glow of that magic hour light.  Here is hoping it is a sign of more to come.  I am getting a hankering for some lens flare.

Let's hope Garfinkel doesn't throw his hat in the ring.

Yeah we are both mere mortals compared to the god of all plane photos. Nice photo though.

Wow, that light! It really doesn't matter how many times you see gorgeous afternoon light, it's always so amazing.

Thanks for not noticing the green tint to the light. I tried to fix it. The blue makes it Velvia-esque.....mmmm Velvia....the secret is accidentally underexpose by like two stops. Yeah, I'm ready for evenings like this but warmer.
