An Underexposed Firetruck

Well, my title may be a bit on-the-nose, but that's no reason to down on my dimly lit composition. Err. Something.

Underexposed Firetruck
The story behind this photo is rather boring. But, since you've scrolled past the pretty picture I'll tell it anyways. This time of year the sunlight at 5pm is very low and comes shooting up the Post Road. This of course happens to be about the same time I'm walking home from work and some days I get inspired. On the day I shot this I was walking around Fairfield shooting all manner of things when a firetruck came roaring down the road. I was just barely quick enough to pull my camera up to my head and pull the trigger. What I got was an image of inconceivable darkness. After a little bit of post, what I was left with was an image of mostly darkness.
So why post the image? Low light. Long shadows.


I do love a long shadow.
