The Cat and the Bat

thecatandbat-2

This shot really surprised me–I was literally putting away the camera because it was DARK.

The only light was from a streetlight, and from the house light in the distance.  I wasn’t even sure that the camera would lock on…but I tried to fire the shutter anyway;

F/1.8 at 1/40s and ISO 6400 (Sure, it’s a tad grainy…but I can’t believe how rich it ended up looking!!)

A lucky catch.

    In reality, 6400 iso is not a big deal any more! Great picture, too, I just love the sense of curiosity and the black vs. white – get it printed and framed!
