Day 19/365: Foggy Reflection



I don't know if I ever told you guys, but my first love is street photography, mainly "shot from the hip". Since the month of January is nearly over, I decided that I had to have at least one street photography picture.  This morning's drive into work was extremely foggy, especially on the long, rural stretch of highway. so needless to say, I was glad when I reached traffic in the city.  As I was sitting in traffic, I looked over and saw that my truck is directly in front of a store window, providing a great scenic photograph. I couldn't pass up the opportunity to snap a quick picture...w/o looking through the viewfinder...hence the term, "shot from the hip". Yep, that's my silhouette in the Jeep.

What I love about this photograph: How the store window frames the photograph!
Technical Stuff: Nikon D40; 24.0mm; 1/60s; f/4.0; ISO 400

I love the framing! Very impressive that you were shooting blind. I don't have the guts for that yet. :)

Shooting from the hip....I like to do that too. But I usually do it when I want to photograph someone or something without anyone noticing me. :)

Great reflection... and I like the whole shooting from the hip idea too. I call that shooting without the dreaded tripod. :-)
