Nikon D70 @ 10mm, various shutter speeds, f/5.6, ISO 200
I wanted to see how many comments I could squeeze out of you on my previous post... I think 12 is about my limit! I've been looking at my stat counter recently and have noticed that the number of hits this site gets is about 75% less than what it was at the start of the year... where's everyone going?!?
Anyway, in an attempt to reverse the trend I offer you another HDR. Taken at about midnight on the same night as this one.
Being fairly late you can imagine that there weren't many people about the uni at this time. There was a very strange little security guard though, who watched me for about 15 minutes from afar. I figured he had seen me, knew that I was harmless enough and was just interested in what I was doing. The next time I looked around though he was standing about 100 yards away - deadly still and looking straight at me. He wasn't going anywhere fast so I just continued snapping away. A few shots later and I turned around again - he was about 50 yards away now. Next thing I knew he was only 25 yards away.
At this point I was starting to get slightly concerned. I felt as if I was in one of those cheap horror movies - every time I turned around he was slightly closer, but I never saw him move! Rather anti-climactic I know, but I eventually walked up to him to make sure everything was alright. I asked if it was ok that I was taking pictures of the uni, to which he responded "well, it's a bit late now". If it wasn't ok then why didn't he bloody well tell me when he first saw me, instead of stalking me like some weird pyscho.
Anyway, he let me take my shots and didn't kill me, so it's all good.
I should perhaps also say that this is the back of the Stair Building at Glasgow uni where I studied law for 4 years - man am I missing those student holidays now!!!
