Wait here…

A Shot A Day - 2016 (024A of 365)-(24-01)
Sony Alpha A7RII, Sony FE 70­-200mm f/4.0 G OSS | ISO 3200 ­ 1/40 @ f/4 at 197mm

I suppose my title underscores the constant rebellious streak coursing through my veins. I couldn’t resist the metaphor, the street lamp and the bokeh here.

ISO 3200 ­ 1/40 @ f/4.0 ­at 197mm

Gear used:

I was struck by some of the juxtapositions both in the image and outside the image. The ones outside the image were my own personal internal struggles with day to day life. Inside the image, I found the “No Stopping Any Time” posted next to, and pointing to the information sign, kind of funny. A balance between getting enough light and not blowing out the bokeh points was the key concern here. Ultimately, I overrode the meter by ­2 stops. The sign being positioned underneath the street lamp was a critical lighting element in the final composition.
