Just a quick post from two trips into town with a camera. When I woke this morning, it was raining so I headed downtown. To me, city scenes like this look so much better when it's cloudy and wet.
This was take with a really long lens that compressed the background - there must be thousands of electric and phone lines in this picture.
These first three pictures were taken from roughly the same location - here's another view.
My camera was right next to the ground for this picture to get the reflections where I wanted.
Later in the evening a few folks from the camera club met at Sequiota Park, and photographed the nearby lime processing plant (at least that's what I think it does). The image was processed with a relatively cool white point, and during its 60 second exposure a few cars found their way into the picture. This looked good in black and white, but I like the color version better.
