Today's photo was an exercise in lighting. The camera was set to a shutter speed of 1/320 and f16 at ISO 200 to expose the lantern mantle properly. An Olympus FL-36R flash in manual mode set at 1/64 power lit the chimney from the front, an a pair of Lumopro LP-160 flashes with grids to restrict the beam lit the base from either side. These two flashes were slaved off the FL-36R and were also set to 1/64 power. The photo was taken under normal living room lighting with an Olympus OM-D-E5 and a 12-50mm lens set at 22mm.

|View up from level 7|
This weekend we visited the Titan Missile Museum just south of Tucson which is the exception to that rule. Complex 571-7 in Green Valley, Arizona was operational from 1963 till the Titan II was decommissioned in 1987. One of 54 site around Tuscon, Little Rock and Wichita, someone had the amazing foresight so suggest saving a silo complex for posterity. Bless them, whoever they are!

I've played with photography off and on over the years, and I'm starting to mess around with it a bit again. So in an attempt to keep myself engaged I'm going to try to post a picture each week that I've taken in the previous week. No particular theme or subject, just whatever strikes me. We'll see how long that lasts....
This week I present our two Border Collies, Fly (front) and Whiskey. They like to hang our around our chairs in the evening.
