The Mall Parking Lot

With the promise of an empty house all to myself this past weekend, what did I do? I went shopping at the mall, something I almost NEVER do unless coerced by one of my kids.

The newly opened Sephora store was my only stop, because it complete sucked me in. And I don't even wear makeup. Something about those sparkly displays, those beautiful colors, the flawless skin, pouty lips and eyes on those perfect models just draws me in. And yes, I dropped over 100 bucks there. And no, I didn't take any pictures, but I wanted to.

But I did witness the last glimmers of light in the sky as I left, and swung to an empty section of parking lot to capture it.

The Last Remnants of Light
Exposure 0.167 sec (1/6)
Aperture f/2.8
Focal Length 36 mm
ISO Speed 500
I steadied the camera on the side view mirror of the car, since there is no way I can hand hold anything slower than 1/60 sec

I then decided to set my aperture to f/22 and included the lamppost that was illuminating the parking lot, for some star bursts:
Mall Parking Lot
Exposure 4 sec
Aperture f/22.0
Focal Length 40 mm
ISO Speed 500
I sandwiched my lens in the crook of space between the side view mirror and the car. Sometimes you have to improvise at these things!

Oh this is so cool! I was supposed to take my daughter shopping tonight but I got out of it because field hockey practice went so late...whew.

Great sky on #1 and wow love the starburst in #2. Nicely done.

Love the starburst! Oh and those malls are absolute evil! ;-)
