Art: Raleigh Carolinas Downtown Residential by Artist Monica Faith
Took this shot on the fly while playing taxi for someone downtown Raleigh, N.C. Several times a day a person can see something and think to themselves, "that would be a good shot to snap", but sometimes the moment/scenery/feeling you wanted captured is not there when you later view the snapshot. With the digital camera, if your target's not moving and you have the time (and you're not holding up traffic) sometimes you get a second (and third) chance to capture exactly what you're after. This was my second shot. The first one was a straight-on shot and the feeling was lost on the shot. The angle is what was needed.

Basic information below copied and pasted to photography pieces in my EBSQ portfolio:

I use an old Adobe Photo Deluxe digital program for cropping and digital effects. The photographs that don't make mention of effects are straight off the camera as-is. Digital photography is merely a hobby for me at this point, and this would be apparent to any professional photographer who got a gander at my camera. As a hobbyist, I'm learning on a Fuji Finepix S6000fd, a fairly basic amateur's camera that got great reviews for the humble price. This $600 camera gave me some pretty solid manual controls to practice with. The picture stabilization sucks according to the pro's reviews, so I can blame some of my photos on this setback. I like the face detection and 28-300mm zoom. It's a far cry from the $4,000+ Nikon D3 Santa refuses to bring me. That's okay, I haven't learned enough about digital photography to be requesting a $4,000 camera. Yet.
