Next Time...I Promise

Wednesday, October 31, 2007

While exploring the local areas of Barbados, I decided to leave my flash for my camera at the resort one night and make use of just the available light. This image was shot using one of my low-light prime lenses. Check out all of those different color temperatures (sounding like a camera geek - I know right).

Anyways, the location of this shot was at a fish market called Oystons. Some of my Bajun readers will definitely correct me on that spelling. The food was great! I had red snapper - my personal favorite (Hmmm...think I'll have that tonight for dinner).

I plan on going back to shoot in 2008 and 2009. There were so many more amazing images that I wish I could have captured....and I will. One night while riding in a taxi, we drove past a building that was really dark but had turquoise doors. The gentlemen inside were playing cards and the doors were illuminated by dim lights on the porch. I almost paid the driver just to go back so that I could get a time exposure. Anyways, after looking through my images from earlier in the day, I realized that I did take a picture of the building while on the way to the pier. Here is the shot:

I'll get that night shot I want next time. And that's a promise!
