Hendey Towers Torrington



PHOTOGRAPHER’S JOURNAL:  The photographer’s mantra must be, “check all setting.” This photo, which calls out to be printed on a wall, will never fill more than a small frame because of a grainy surface that all but spoils it. “Check all settings.” The defect occurred because I had earlier turned the sensitivity of the sensor (ISO) up high in order to shoot in a dark room. That was before I came outside in the daylight and found planets in alignment and Hendey posing. Check all settings. I'll never be There again.

I started laughing out loud with this one, Ted, because every time Astrid and I walk in or out of a church/cathedral, we always say to each other, "Change your ISO!" So, it happens to the best of us. :)

Amen. I've never met a photographer who shoots manually who was immune.
