I apologize for the lack of gun stuff of late. This is supposed to be a gun type blog after all. Between being on call, sleeping off the work and a runny nose, and teaching myself to use a new camera, I did not make it to the range today. Perhaps I will go tomorrow if I get done with cases soon enough.
I guess I could say this is a shooting blog, whether cameras or firearms. Nah.... Its a personal blog, and sometimes I will use it for record keeping. Keeping a record and understanding why certain things occur in photography is integral to the learning process. If a photographer does not understand why a serendipitous effect occurred, they have no hope of repeating it when they would like.
I really thought that I would like the top two photos while I was shooting, but the contre-jour around the architecture bothers me. As it turned out, I much prefer the third shot. I like the expression that could mean anything. I like the rhythm set up in the back ground. I like being able to read "Carnival" on the shirt. In regards to composition, it is the strongest. Oddly enough, it was the one I simply shot.
