Photo of the Week: Drive By Shooting
You can file this one under "sometimes you get lucky." This is the Nichols Bridgeway in Millennium Park (ie: the bridge that leads to the Art Institute). I shot this through the windshield of my car as we drove under the bridge on Monroe. I was in the passenger seat, obviously-- I don't recommend shooting photos while driving, and certainly not photos that involve looking UP through the windshield. Rarely do photos that I shoot from a moving vehicle turn out, so I was pleasantly surprised to find this one more or less in focus.
This photo makes me wonder, what exactly is the woman with the camera shooting? A picturesque cityscape? The traffic down Monroe? Or perhaps something else that we can't see? Another unknown: why does the woman to her left appear to be upset?
Photo Details: Nikon D7000 w 70-300mm lens (at 220mm), 1/3200sec at f5.3 and ISO800.
