I have seen this statue of Saint Francis many times, since it’s right near my son’s daycare, but I never quite knew what to make of it from a photographic perspective (har!). The day I took this picture it finally hit me: lighting! (duh) It was cloudy and a bit rainy when I dropped my son off on this particular day, and because I had my camera with me I went over to the garden where this statue is placed and fired off a couple shots. I’m very happy with how it turned out, and I hope I can run out and take some more pics the next time it’s cloudy and overcast. We don’t get too many days like that in Oklahoma, so when they happen you gotta use ’em!
Side note: I apologize for the chime noise that pops up near the end of the audio commentary. That was my phone with a new text message, which I forgot to silence. Oops.
Interesting presentation of photos, at first I thought you had turned them into videos; but now I understand. They are audio snippets attached to the post. Very clever. Found your site via reddit. keep up the good work.
Thank you! I appreciate your comments, and I do hope to keep up these weekly 50mm photos as long as possible :)
