The Daily Photo- January 10th, 2016.

All Locked Up
The January weather has been super cooperative, so I took advantage of Saturday’s outstanding weather to get a little street shooting time in. Found this garage door, with lot’s of extra character, just waiting to be captured.
ISO 500, 1/400 @ f/5.6 at 113mm focal length.
Considering the flat light of the day (this past Saturday) and the straight-on angle of the shot, I elected to focus on lines and shapes in this shot, with a little bit of texture thrown in. I find the color very warm and vibrant, in fact, I think that’s what attracted me to the scene in the first place. It may seem simple in looking at the image, but I think the off center placement of the door lock helps create the right balance.
