Blue Clouds over Loop 360
I’ve carried around my Panasonic Lumix ZR1 almost everywhere. It’s small enough that it easily fit into my pant’s pocket. And though this is an inexpensive, refurnished point and shoot I got for $70, it really does take decent photographs especially at ISO 80. So much so that, for now at least, it ‘s my daily carry around camera. For a while I was hoping my water proof Sony TX5 would fill that role but I found that ultimately, even at its lowest ISO, the image quality didn’t satisfy. I stopped carrying it around, even though it was rugged and smaller than the Panasonic.
I took this photograph a couple of days ago. We were going out to dinner and I noticed these stormy clouds after a day of badly needed rain. It was still bright enough that I could shoot easily at ISO 80. A little motion blur, leading lines and a melancholy blue image creating a moody photo for the start of a new work week. Taken in West Austin traveling along Loop 360, also know as the Capital of Texas Highway. What a cool name for a highway.
