i believe in symmetry

i believe in symmetry
so i raise my glass to symmetry, to the second hand and its accuracy
this was one of those photos which was really easy to take, required hardly any processing, and instantly became one of my recent favourites. it's from the san francisco church in castro that i was raving about a few days ago and shows off more of the awesome woodwork. because it was dark inside i needed a long exposure, which without a tripod meant that i head to try and balance the camera. lucky for me someone had left an alter in the church, right where i wanted to place my camera. as a result i just set my shutter speed to 0.6 seconds (an educated guess), set the timer to 10 seconds and placed the camera pointing upwards to get the shot. no real skill or creative eye was needed - but that didn't stop me from liking what i saw 10.6 seconds later.
