A Photo Served

Sometimes, photo expeditions are planned, sometimes not. And sometimes, they are not even photo expeditions at all! This visit to an ice skating rink was definitely for a different occasion than photography. When things were over and I walked by these doors on the way out I could not help but taking a photo. It was literally served to me on a silver platter and all that was missing was to capture it. Have you heard the saying that the best camera is the one you have with you? For me on this occasion, it was an old iPhone 7.

The most difficult part was capturing this quartet head on keeping vertical lines vertical, horizontal lines horizontal, and maintaining all of the right angles. I fiddled with the scene quite a bit but the resulting photograph still needed a minor tweak afterwards. Now I need to plan a photo op and return with a "real" camera.

Enjoy the beauty that surrounds you! (#etbtsy)
