Day 57 POTD More Grand Forks Oddities
I know these two photos are very similar to one another, but I wanted you see that this is in a residential neighborhood (2nd photo), and I really liked the greater closeness of the 1st photo. I'm still practicing with my 35mm 2.0 lens. I used custom white balance, but even cwb catches a lot of blue in the snow. Removing color cast in PSE5 still seemed to leave the pretty light of just pre-sunset. This was shot in manual mode, manual focus, ISO 400, f/11 and both had a ss of 1/80.
These are "The Kegs". Those weird, garbage can small red things in the front are actually drive-up speakers. In the summer, young women on roller skates actually come out to the car with your food. The hamburgers and shakes are great, and you feel like you really have stepped (or driven) back into the 50s. Please note that as weird as Grand Forks is, we don't have poor young'uns coming out in shorts and roller skates during our chilly winters!
