Photo of the Week: Just Stop

just stop

This week's photo has been chosen by default, as I'm really busy and probably won't have time to post anything else for a few days.  That's not to say that I don't like it-- I do.  It reminds me that I need to shoot more with my prime lenses.  Sure, zooms are more versatile, but you loose that buttery smooth bokeh that only a large aperture prime can produce.  Yes, I just wrote "buttery smooth bokeh."  I'm a dork.

The building in the background is the Old Chicago Main Post Office, which has been vacant since about 1997, though thankfully has landmark status so at least it can't be torn down.

Nikon D90 with 50mm lens, 1/400sec at f2 and ISO400.
