In an attempt to have a wider variety of city roads to choose from for the sliproject shot, I snapped a bunch of pics on the way to Momma’s house this morning, and on the way home too.

The light was all that beautiful morning light, the time when you’re supposed to get the best shots, but in the canyon that is US75 through Dallas, the dynamic range was too high to get anything useful, and I could see that without even looking at the pictures I was making.

But some interesting reflections happen in the early morning, and so I casually sprayed out the side windows a couple of times…

And lo and behold, when I got home, uploaded the pictures, and started looking, this one jumped out.

I think I may have the makings of a brief series… But I think I’ll keep it to myself for now, as I may never do anything with it, may decide it’s a banal idea, or may just give up before I even get properly started…

I wish I had a bit more control over the exposure in this, as it would’ve been nicer had the sky not been completely blown out. But then the trees would’ve been black, and there would be very little detail in the shadow areas.

I’m not really sure how to solve this, but I’ll do some research, and keep experimenting. If you have any ideas, I hope you’ll share them!

Anyways, I like this, and maybe you do too.
