Artist's Description

—a hotel and the Sacramento’s Convention Center, as seen from Capitol Park

This photograph was taken with a Nikon D80 camera using a tripod. I used the Nikkor 70-300MM telescopic lens and no pre-processing onboard. This was VERY early in my DSLR usage and I had no understanding of ISO, aperture, or shutter speed variables when shooting at night. So the shot was taken solely by adjusting shutter speed. I can’t remember which setting I used, SHUTTER PRIORITY or MANUAL, but it wasn’t AUTO (which I tried to my complete embarrassment much later) and it wasn’t the preset for NIGHTIME. In the dark, I completely forgot that was even an option. LOL!

Since it was obviously taken at night and I was alone in a park in the dark, naturally I was approached by two of “California’s Finest” who were curious as to what I was doing. I tried not to hesitate when considering whether or not to tell them I was training my 3-winged bald eagle to play Frisbie. But, hesitate I did and I was asked to show them a picture, something I was eager to do since they had loaded weapons available and I was feeling somewhat intimidated.
