Day 207—Lamppost

The Sierra Vista Bridge that crosses the railroad tracks in downtown Roseville has always intrigued me so I walked across it today. I think the lampposts are interesting and they look to be original to the bridge which was built in 1929. The lone pigeon standing sentinel atop the arch makes an interesting addition. I used the Sunny f/16 rule which seems to have provided the correct exposure. Still, I had to straighten the photograph a bit; I need to pay more attention to lines when I photograph something.

Focal Length 82mm
ISO 100

  1. Lovely composition- and the pigeon leads your eye to the lamp post. Lamp posts are back in style again- we have some new ones on our new walking lane on the freeway overpass. I love that this one is an old one. Nice image!

  2. Now I am wondering how this would look in black and white- or sepia! I love the details on the lamp.
