Grab Shot

Periodically I see a photograph in the newspaper or a magazine that is just arresting! I clip it out and save it as an example of good lighting, or an emotional moment ... well conceived and executed, or just a great grab shot. Sometimes, I record a frame that qualifies too as one of those favorites, although I don't shoot enough stills to accumulate many candidates for a gallery. A small collection is currently at this web address. Here's an example, of a church cross that was otherwise rather mundane in the noon-day sun -- even hard to see atop the church sanctuary. But when the sun began to set, the light changed and the cross picked up a nice glow and reflections. Just one of those shots we might miss ... or see at the right time of day.
