Street shots

On Thursday I went out to dinner with my mother and brother, in midtown, for his birthday. I did something that night that I haven't done for quite a while - I brought a camera with me and just took some shots while walking along the street. I was playing with my new lens (f/1.4, 50mm prime) and seeing what I could do. I had fun - I miss doing this sort of thing. I think some of them came out pretty well. Enjoy.

Radio City 2
I felt like such a tourist taking some of these shots, but I still like it. I pumped up the saturation and vibrancy but otherwise the picture is basically untouched.

Lit fountain
We passed this fountain and I was curious as to what this lens and camera could do with it. Well, there's your answer. (f/1.4, 50mm, 1/800th, ISO 400. No flash.)

This photo is so... midtown/ radio city/ times square to me. All bright lights and neon and so stereotypically NYC.

Another shot of a water fountain, lit from within. Love this lens.

Sometimes out of focus is better.

My brother. I really like this one.
