Anybody Got Any Gloves?

Daily Image - Anybody Got Any Gloves? - 12 January 2012

One of the challenges of this project is getting images on nasty days. The Sony A-900 is a professional camera and as such is fully weatherproofed, but alas, I am not! Today we are experiencing a winter storm with cold temperatures being made much colder by driving wind. The snow is fine, and although there is not a lot of it, it is also being driven by the winds, so it feels like a tattoo gun on your exposed skin. Not pleasant weather for a photo shoot, and not many subjects either. This small garden ornament, however caught my eye. The figures seem to be reaching to each other for support and protection from the storm. Not a bad idea!

Sony A-900 – Tamron 90mm – f 2.8 – Macro – ISO 200 – f13 – 1/20.

    Looks like a Mexican friendship ring. A Mexican exchange student gave us a 4 person ring and it sits on a table in the loft. When you put a candle in the middle and turn out the lights the shadows of the figures appear to be dancing on the walls of the house all holding each other.
