Ok, please be honest with me on this one. What do you think about this picture? It is so different from what I usually capture but as soon as I saw the scene, I really liked it.
To be honest, it’s so different for me that I’m kinda hesitant on posting it. I get those fears like ‘what if people don’t like it’ or ‘what if people don’t like me because they don’t like it’. That last one doesn’t make sense but it’s actually something I think about. Crazy, huh?
I captured this while we were walking off the Brooklyn Bridge. When we first got onto the bridge, we stopped at this stand to get water. So when we got back down, I knew he was still going to be there but I didn’t expect this awesome frame and the glow from the carts to show up.
It sort of reminds me of that movie ‘Sleepers’. Do you remember that one? It’s wayyyy back in the day. 1996! With a young Brad Pitt and a cute Brad Renfro. If you haven’t seen it, it’s a little disturbing. Andrew and I were talking about it a while back and for some reason decided to watch it again right before our trip. The movie is based in Hells Kitchen, NYC and there was a hot dog stand involved. That’s all I’m going to say. So when I saw this scene in real life, it reminded me of the movie. I’m not even sure if I’d recommend the movie. It depends on how old you are… but it’s a good one.
The settings for this image is 1/5th of a second at F5.0 and ISO 250. To capture it all in focus, I used the banister as my tripod. Luckily the hot dog vender or customer were not moving very much 🙂
