Girl Playing in a Fountain

Girl Playing In a Fountain

Is this my best photo from 2007? Flickr seems to think so, and I don’t have any better metric by which to judge. It’s certainly one of a handful that I’m particularly proud of from this past year, so I figure I may as well go with it.

This was shot one particularly hot summer’s day in New York City’s Washington Square Park. It was the kind of day that makes me wonder what the hell I’m doing in the city, but I digress. As it happens, kids seem pretty fond of playing in the fountain there, can’t say I blame them. This was a young girl (8 or 9) jumping up and down in the water, and the scene is back lit by the sun, as you can tell by the shadow. I did the black and white conversion in post processing, though there wasn’t all that much color to begin with. I didn’t touch it other than that; this is pretty much straight out of the camera.

Exposure: 1/1250″
Aperture: f/9
