The News Steps
Nikon D70 @ 18mm, 10 sec, f/8, ISO 200
Sorry about the slow update, but I tried to make this post last night and forgot about blogger being down for some scheduled maintenance.
I took this shot a couple of nights ago while killing some time before meeting someone. My wander confirmed that I'm finding it incredibly difficult to find night scenes at the moment that I want to photograph. Not necessarily because I don't like the look of the scene, but because the dynamic range is often way off the scale. I know I could blend a couple of exposures if I wanted to, but I prefer to avoid that if at all possible. So I ended up only taking pictures at 2 scenes, which, for an hour and a half, seemed almost like a waste of time.
Anyway, self induced moan over!
Having said all of the above, I'm actually quite pleaseed with this shot. I think this may be another one of those shots that I don't think many people will be particularly taken by, but feel free to change my mind! This was taken at the opening to a fairly hidden lane in Edinburgh and the sign grabbed my attention as I was walking by.
