Now You See It, Now You Dont (8th place, In Transit Challenge)

Now You See It, Now You Don't (8th place, In Transit Challenge)

Washington, D.C.

Well, don't really know if I'll leave this here, but I thought it was fun despite the flaws and my husband liked it, so here it is. I must have spent 100 exposures and an hour in front of the new National Museum of the American Indian at the Smithsonian Institution trying to catch this. Shooting into a shaded window (into diners' faces, almost), with people in bright sunlight, passing by, impossible to focus due to the way their reflections progressed through the line of windows, slow shutter speed, shallow DOF... I created such interest that some kids got out their cell phones and started taking pictures of each other in the glass :-). Maybe if I have time I'll go back and try again (unlikely, but I'd like to if possible).
