The Robbery

    Newer Older


    I'm really glad no one came into my apartment seeing me in a ski mask holding a Glock.

    To clarify, just because a few have asked: this was a self-portrait. I was not pointing the gun at anyone. I have a wireless shutter remote that I was holding in my left hand to trigger the camera. The gun was unloaded (no magazine was even in the gun), and no one else was even home. It was pretty scary, though, pointing a gun at my 50D and 100L. The thought of shooting them makes kittens cry.

      I'm glad I didn't come into your apartment and surprise a guy in a ski mask holding a Glock.

      I wish I could see a little more detail on the front of the gun.

      What's that there, a 19?

      @Chris: In retrospect, yeah I probably should've used spot metering to make sure the barrel was exposed brighter, or perhaps I could bring it out a little in post. Playing around with it though, I keep going back to this version.

      @moofbong: Yup, good eye!
