White Sox Opening Day! (self portrait)

Good Guys Wear Black & White

I don't often do topical, themed photographs-- ie: a photo about Opening Day, posted on Opening Day.  Or a photo about St Patrick's Day posted on St Patrick's Day.  It's not that I don't want to, it really just comes down to time.  Everything I put on the internet usually seems to be about a week or two delayed.

Today I happened to have the morning off, so I figured I'd give it a shot.  My first idea was to do some sort of macro photo with the ball, but those were just "okay".  This photo turned out better.  I shot it mostly to amuse myself, and in that regard it's a smashing success.  Good guys wear black & white!  And just a touch of sepia tone.

Photo Details: Nikon D7000 w 50mm Nikkor f1.8 lens, 1/400sec at f1.8, ISO400.  This is in front of a mirror, inverted so the text would be readable.
