Fools Night

In Gotham, there is always more Trick than Treat on All Hallow's Eve. Makes for a very busy Caped Crusader.

My challenger for "Get Pushed Week 15 is Abhijit, and he wanted me to "tackle that one thing on your photography bucket list that you have been putting off."

Lucky (or unlucky) for me, my bucket list is looooonnnnngggg!

One of the things that's been bugging me for the last month is that I wanted to do a Bat-Signal shot. In my mind this shot's gone through SO many alterations that I just never could pin down what I wanted to do. I made the bokeh template weeks ago and it's just been sitting in my drawer!

Finally, the weekly theme of "Skyline" seemed tailor-made for my plans... but still I did nothing!

So this morning I resolved myself to once-and-for-all get this done. It would also let me play around with my new camera too.

This image was a bit different in my mind. I had the buildings backlit so light would come through the windows and such, but it just wasn't working out; so it finally migrated into the image you see here.

I am pretty happy with it; mostly because I FINALLY got it done! And I don't think I would have if it weren't for the push, so THANKS Abhijit!!

See bokeh template here: (and yes, I taped it to my new Zeiss lens because I'm crazy like that! :))

The "Bat Signals" are a string of halloween lights :)

So you can just tape the template to the lens? I tried to get it to fit on to it and it was useless. These red bats are most unusual?

@maggiemae Yep MaggieMae, that's how it works; you just make the template and shoot through it. Actually, I usually cut them to size to fit inside my lens filter then screw them on, but in this case tape did just fine!
