For photographers, Independence Day usually means the same old photographs of fireworks, family picnics and people on the National Mall, so I thought this year I'd try something a little different. I assigned myself a mini photo shoot: a walk around the block in my neighborhood, downtown L.A., or, one block in one hour. This is what I came back with. To increase dramatic effect, they're shown slightly out of order.
Shot with a Nikon D1x w/Nikkor 18-55 f/3.5 DX AF, ISO 640, cropped square just because. As always, clicking on the image will bring you the larger image.
