Do you ever find yourself in a perfect photographic moment? It often happens along my drive to work. When inspiration struck most recently, I found myself at a red light, able to snap this quick photograph the multiple layers of transportation through north Columbus- Morse road, a major artery, and a south bound Norfolk Southern container train. The motion in the scene would have been perfect for video, and that's where I went first with the iPhone, but the angle of view simply wasn't wide enough. Switching over to a still gave me the perspective I was looking for, and the light was just dark enough to ensure the moving train would be blurred. This shot would be nearly impossible to replicate- I can't just run out into the road and put up a tripod there, and trying to get my car in this exact position between two railroad bridges isn't likely to happen again.
