You Are The Sunshine of my Life

Brandi's picture of Katie got me thinking about what really matters in my life. It's been easy to get down lately, what with a complete and total lack of sunshine on top of lots of crap life has thrown at me. But I still have my family and my 2 boys, the sunshine of my life.

Canon 30D
Canon 24-70,, f/2.8L set at 35mm
Aperture f/8.0
Shutter 1/125, 1/320, 1/800
ISO 400
Natural Light

This is a shed on my way to work that I've admired for several years. I just love the striated wood and the fact it's on the brink of collapsing at any given moment.

This morning the sun was actually shining and I thought it the perfect moment to stop and see what I could come up with. I took several different shots but this one speaks to me. It's unfortunate I couldn't bring the sun a bit more under control and avoid blowing it out completely. It seems it's a by-product of HDR, which of course I employed here. And then there's the fact it is a great-big, super-bright, burning ball of gas. So maybe that's why it's blown out.

In answer to why I don't have a face, I'll only say that if there is a man on the moon, then there should be a man (or woman) on the sun! I was trying to find this individual and instead got a really cool shed!

  1. Well, call me silly, but I do see a face in this! Two oblong eyes with a 2x4 nose, and a glittering gold tooth... Kind of a "shed pirate" if you will! 8-)
