Street Lights... They're The Only Lights You Know

Orange Bars

Posted on Thu 20th Oct, 2005, 11:50pm

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/60, Aperture: f/4.5,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: None,
Lens: Canon EF 50mm f/1.8, Focal length: 50mm,
Captured: 20th October 2005, 7:14pm,

This is the lift area where I work. I didn't really notice the repetition of vertical bars type thing until I looked back at it just now.

I should probably make an effort to do a 'proper' ISO 100 shot with a tripod but security at work are getting quite nazi about taking photos (you're not meant to do it without a permit). Every time I point my camera at anything outside the building one of them appears round the corner and tells me off.

Anyway I'm seeing a lot of the world by night at the moment. At least that's how it feels. So with the nights drawing in I think I might keep the orange theme going (orange being the colour of street lights in my part of the world, in case any foreigners were wondering).

Let me know what you think. Orange. Yay or nay?

Ah yes. Amok. You don't see him for years and then he pops up to tell you you're nuts. Cheers sir. Hope all's well. If you're having any birthdays you want DJ'd gimme a bell.

Excellent warm colours - reminds me of the 1970s - expect to see Faye Dunaway at any moment \o>

yeah, takes me right back to the '70s...a nicely composed shot that.

Lovely shot, as milou says it has a really "warm" feel to it. I'd be tempted to have the vertical fluorescent tubes on the right slightly further over to the left. I feel I'm looking too far to the right of the image.

Jamey, Fri 21st Oct, 2005, 12:22am
You may well be right spl@t. Unfortunately the other wall got in the way and the reflections didn't look as good when I stood further left.

Why not take pictures of interesting things, ask my dad for advice, he may suggest the dents in the garage door for instance or the life sapping effects his terminally boring anicdotes have on others relating to the dents in said garage door.

Jamey, Fri 21st Oct, 2005, 12:31am
Bring him along on the 30th. And the garage doors too. I'll make them a star.

i quite like the orangeness of it tbh, that and it looks like a screenshot from the movie 'collateral' when tom cruise is trying to kill Jada Pinkett :D

I dunno, not sure I like this one. Can't really say why. Just doesn't have the appeal of the previous ones. An orange theme is cool though. Well, warm. You know what I mean.

Looks better in blue

I like the juxtaposition of the white lights going off to infinity.

Jamey, Fri 21st Oct, 2005, 4:56pm
Juxtaposed with what?

amok, Wed 26th Oct, 2005, 11:58am

You've got fruit on the brain, you.
