A few weeks ago I met up with a photographer friend of mine who schooled me in using my own camera. He's that good. We met up right after work, so I brought my camera with me to the office that day.
This was during the Mike-as-a-cripple phase of our lives, so naturally he and I drove to work that day. I had just recently gotten my fancy new telephoto zoom lens and wanted to test its image stability. For those of you not as big a photo nerd as I have become, let me just say image stabilization reduces vibration therefor allowing the photographer to take clearer photos. My fancy new lens came with image stabilization and there seemed no better time to test it than in a moving car.
As Mike drove us into work, I snapped photos along the way. Most were highly unimpressive, but once we turned onto Lake Street I knew we'd be under the El. The yellow of the tracks and the intermittent light I thought might result in a cool image, and if I do say so myself, I think it did. It's not the most dynamic image, but I like how it shows a slice of city life early on a Wednesday morning.
