Cooling Off

2010 June 7

These two cyclists discovered an open fire hydrant at Greenwich Street and 8th Avenue, and decided to take full advantage. Something interesting happened in this shot that I can’t fully explain. Almost nothing in the shot is in perfect focus, except the hydrant and the area around it. My little camera is typically not so good at selective focus, especially in bright daylight, but it’s possible I was moving the camera as I hit the shutter, and the relative motion is the least in the center. Whatever, it is, I like it.

    For the truth that the effect casual sit well with the scene. It seems taken with a professional camera!
