August 21

Just playing around at the county fair; this photo was taken about twenty minutes after sunset tonight.  I'm posting it because it's the best light pattern I got tonight.  Also I think it's cool that the white dot in the center of the photo is the moon. One thing I was realizing about taking this photo tonight is that my comfort zone is definitely aperture mode (or manual when aperture doesn't fit).  I did realize early on that I wanted to have the shutter speed somewhere between 1/2 and 3/4 of a second, but it didn't occur to me to switch to shutter mode; I just kept adjusting my aperture as the light got darker to keep the shutter in that range. 
f/10, 3/4 sec., ISO100
