Day Two Hundred Thirty

230/365. Shiny Happy People ~ R.E.M.Throw your love around

 

So it took a day to finally sort things from the Getty incident. Anyone still interested in that can check out that thread.

 

Anyhow, this toy is a pretty common guy. He rocks out in the sunlight (batteries not included)... so I'm sure he didn't mind me taking photos with the flash (tee hee).

 

And believe it or not, this is pretty much straight out of the camera aside from the crop, text, and framing. That small sharpening halo is an artifact of how damn sharp this lens is.

 

Also, I kinda got lucky with the composition. I fired away a few since I was handholding with a locked focus (AF-L). That massive ball in the back made it seem like he's wearing a helmet. Fun :)

 

And finally, clickity split...
