Ground Zero

Ground Zero
Construction site at Ground Zero, New York. Formerly the site of the World Trade Center with this link showing where the buildings were prior to 9/11/2001. It is the future site of the National 9/11 Memorial Museum and a new world trade center complex. This photo is a composite of 3 shots processed as an HDR image. Go to Flickr for the full view of this image cropped to fit on the blog.

Higher Ed? - Seen on a steet in Seattle

I found the ad for "Earn While You Learn" at this strip club in Seattle to be less than enticing and wonder exactly what one might be learning. I guess it's part of the "stimulus" plan...
Taken with my D300 on manual settings (f 4.5, 1/320, ISO 3200). I used the light meter to get an approximation of settings, but it was too light, so gradually decreased the shutter speed until I got the desired effect (and a sharper picture).
