Rush Hour
Originally uploaded by sweetspot@f8

This photo was taken on April 26, 2009 inside the Lincoln Memorial. I was observing all the people that are coming in and out of the Lincoln Hall, as tourist we all have one thing in common, we want to take pictures President Abraham Lincoln and capture that very moment I myself have probably taken hundreds of photos of the Lincoln Memorial from different angels, so at that time I decided to do a little experiment, I wanted to make it look like people are in a hurry which is very much the reality inside the hall especially during summer. And this is the result, it looked like it was shot in a train station where all people come and go and are always in a hurry to get to their destination.

Taken with a Canon Rebel XS with the EF-s 18-55mm IS Lens.
Shot at 32 mm in Manual mode with an aperture of F/5 and shutter speed of 1/10. Converted to black and white using Adobe Lightroom Ver. 2.7
