Artist's Description

I’ve mentioned the ongoing monetary distress California has been having and its impact upon my life and the lives of my friends. While wandering about the State Capitol grounds in Sacramento, I noticed the Christmas tree was still up. There was a lifting machine to assist with the removal of decorations but they were all still in place as well. I’m pinching pennies while the state searched for, cut, transported, “erected”, decorated, lit (using electricity), then undecorated_, loaded and hauled away 80 feet of now *_dead* waste. I couldn’t find anything poignant in the overall moderately depressing tableau. But looking into it a bit closer brought out some colourful irony. You may need a bit of imagination to find the 2nd level of irony but here are both of them as seen thru my camera on January 10th, 2010, 4:14pm.


Nikon D90 w/ Nikkor 18-105 lens
Exposure: 1/40 (I bracketed a ton to get one I liked)
f/stop: f/9
ISO: 200 (baseline for the D90)
Focal length: 90 mm (I found “shoot low, aim high” hid me from the reflection while also showing the most of the building so I went for a pretty high ornament)
Metering mode: spot (I’m not sure if I was better off aiming for the surface of the ball or for the reflected building. I went for the…)
Full manual with no Nikon ‘on camera’ creative preset

Callie In Blue was kindly featured in Northern California Style Group with my deepest appreciation!

Nikons rule while Canon’s make outstanding boat anchors.
