converging lines on a dirt road ƒ/2.8, 44 s, 100 ISO

Another night shot from the other night. I decided to put this one up in black and white because, unlike the previous few photos, the color in it was just crap. I think it turned out pretty well. It has a lot of drama going on, which can be a good thing.

What drew me to this shot was the lines going down the dirt road, left from a tire, matched by the lines going down the side of the ditch in the grass, probably made by a lawn mower. I’m actually very happy with how it turned out. It looks even better larger because you can see so much more detail in the grass and the corn fields. And if I’m not mistaken, that sign in the distance is the same sign from this photo. And, as an added bonus, that car parked right next to the sign that you can barely see is actually my car, right where I had pulled off the road.

Yesterday was an exciting day. While I didn’t exactly take any photos, I did go up to Edina to visit my friends, Rob and Alyssa. We watched the Vikings barely beat the Packers and then Rob and I went for a walk. It was great because we found a Fisher radio and record player sitting on the curb with signs that said “FREE” taped to them. I had been wanting a record player for some time now, so I am quite excited about this. And the best part is that everything seems to work–I just have to replace one fuse. So, if you have any sweet records that you don’t want anymore, send me an e-mail.
