Happy Holidays, People

Alright everyone – penultimate (I never get to say that) night of Hanukkah.  Day after Christmas.  Kwanzaa… whenever that is.  Hope things are good with you and yours.

You Best Protect Your Neck

A ways back, I posted a picture of the Fire Fighter Memorial sculpture in Occidental Park.  I just found another one I liked too, so here you go.

One thing this shares with the earlier one from the same series is they both have that creamy smooth bokeh going on, thanks to the 50mm lens.  It might be the cheapest lens I have but it’s also the only one that lets you blur the background just so.  I’m not sure this one has the punch that the other does, but I like the highlights around the SFD helmet and how when things are sharp, they’re sharp.
