The Light of Lincoln

Lincoln's View

I haven’t written about a photo in quite some time, and while I could try to explain to you my lack of photography related posts, in the end you probably just don’t care. But as I was perusing through Flickr yesterday my eyes stopped on gattoraffa’s black and white shot of the Lincoln Memorial. The lighting on this shot is amazing and it almost looks to me as if the crowd is being sucked into a spaceship’s tractor beam for a good old fashioned alien abduction. Having spent a lot of time lately with studio lights, it’s refreshing to see photos like this that use the tried and true, ultimate source of light, Mr. Sun. One other thing to note about this shot is that you don’t need a big fancy SLR to capture an amazing photograph – this was taken with a Canon PowerShot SD1000. Great job!
