Day 22: River City Cinema


Enough with the shots from a car window, already! I decided to get this picture of a movie theatre in the early morning hours. . . just because I like the way it looks. I think the marquee would like good at night as well, and may try for an evening shot later. Manual mode; f/5.6; wb-sunny; using my 18-135 mm lens at 95mm; exp 1/125.
Oh, and while I'm at it--have you seen any of these movies and liked them?

And this is for my good friend, Veevs, and anyone else who is interested: This is a link to Lady Ren's (Ren Oakenfull's) site where she sells PSE actions and to see explanations of her actions--Lady Ren

Wow that is just the coolest building! I love this shot. You are so lucky to not have any cars in the way too. That is tough!

I think it would be fun to take a photo at night, too. It's such a neat scene driving down that street! See you tomorrow!

Cool "every town" picture!
This might be fun with some vintage-type edits- some texture, sepia...

amazing grace said...

You've got really nice composition to this shot

Jeanne said...

This is a great shot. That building is so interesting.

Well done!

Liz said...

Awesome! It is really cool how this looks like a ghost town because of the early morning. The light is great and the no people is even better! :)

Amy said...

Like it, very nice! I've seen Juno, Alvin, and Nat'l Treasure, liked all three. My girls liked Alvin better than I did, but it's still cute. I was supposed to see 27 Dresses tonight, but too much snow. :(

Val said...

Becky said...

Nice shot! And I rarely go to the movies, but I'll let you know what I think when they come out on Netflix. ;-)

Margaret said...

I love that shot! Looks so quaint!

robin said...

Love the "Small town square" and vintage look of this. We don't go to movies at the theater much, usually wait and rent the dvd. Would love to see 27 Dresses with the girls!

HLIP said...

That's a neat idea.

Wish I had a cinema like that to shoot. Around here it's all megaplex type things.

laulley
