Day 140: A Different Kind of Water Tower

Tonight I was on campus taking pictures yet again. I had a couple of assistants and it was raining so we decided to try and shoot something inside the union. Of course I did not bring my tripod yet again because I would be walking around inside. As is usually goes I ended up outside in a situation where my tripod would have come in handy. I made due with a short wall to get a picture of the clock tower. The picture was okay, but for some reason I didn’t like the result. As we started to walk towards the tower itself I saw the reflection in a large puddle. My camera had already been put away, but of course it came back out to get the shot. I have been trying to capture reflections lately, and this one was too good to pass up. Yet again the tripod would have been great, but I had to just try and stay still. I bumped the ISO up to 6400 which left me with an exposure of one second. It doesn’t sound like much, but that is a long time to stay still. That task can be a little harder when there is a little chill in the air. In the end I liked how my picture turned out. The small movement that I had during the second seems to have helped the clock tower just jump out of the puddle.
