168. Mardi gras


Mardi gras. 9.39pm, 13 April 2011

There are no innocent desires. –  Luis Bunuel (attrib.)

This well lit figure stands by a pond fringed with planted natives. The pond is also fringed by the suburbs; it’s on a reserve within walking distance of home, one which is a pleasure to reach without having to take the car. There is plenty of colour and texture here, but the incandescent light balance has cooled the penlight effect. Focus was by eye and the use of a smaller aperture for better depth of field. This is easiest with a wide angle.

28mm, ISO 2500. 30 seconds at f8
