Description

1/320 at f/3.5; Lens 28-75; Focal Length 28; ISO 200; Hand Held; Natural Light

I was having a less than inspiring day looking for photo subjects when I passed this shuttered service station. I quickly pulled over, got out of my car, and made several exposures from varying positions. I got back in my car, the hair on my arms and the back of my neck tingling and standing on end, excited about the find. Even though these were the only photos I made the entire day, I felt it was quite a successful afternoon.

Exif: F Number: 3.5, Exposure Bias Value: 0.00, ExposureTime: 1/320 seconds, Flash: did not fire, compulsory flash mode, ISO: 200, White balance: Auto white balance, FocalLength: 28.00 mm, Model: Canon EOS DIGITAL REBEL XTi
