It's no secret that I love skateboarding. Been doin' it since preschool. Nevertheless, tonight was frustrating despite it being perfect weather and zero traffic in this alley (I could have posed nude (Ha, yea right)! The exposures just weren't turning around right... and I finally figured it out in the end, that I never set the ISO (it was at 1,250)... even that rim light at 1/128th was coming out too bright (I thought). Oh well, the life of a 365 goes on.
One particular thing to note is that everything else you see (broom, roses, detergent buckets)... they were all found lying around in the alley. Figured I could make good use of 'em.
Other than that, you strobofenes can read on...
