Week 40, Day 283, February 2, 2010, Cannon Ball

This reminds me of the cannon balls that I saw at the Castle in Rome, Italy.  I wonder if this was the inspiration of the architect that designed them.

Lessons Learned:
  • Arches out of focus make great back drops.
  • Being addicted to Lost limits my blog posting.
Photo details: Exposure time 1/200 sec, Aperture f/1.8, ISO 100, Focal Length 50 mm, 35 mm equivalent focal length 82mm, Lens Canon EF 50mm f/1.8 II, handheld.

Nifty fifty lenses are delicious. When I get a DSLR, that's the first thing I'm buying. Then a macro. Then probably a 17-40. Then like a 55-300. Anyway, I'm rambling.

Cool picture and you're right about the arch. I'm looking forward to buying a 50mm lens soon and I plan to watch Lost on dvd someday. :)

Great textures with the ball in the foreground, and stones and arch in the background - love the DoF too. I like how the shapes of the ball and the arch are completely different and how they work in each others space.

50mm lens great as usual! Very good composition. Interesting photo!
