Where bikers play chicken

Where bikers play chicken

50mm * f/1.8 * 1/13 sec * ISO 400

You can find this under the pier. The other side of the tunnel is the parking lot. I wanted a wide angle lens and then take a shot looking down the middle of the tunnel. But, the kit lens would be too slow at f/3.5 and I didn’t want to change it out while it was slightly misty.

Then, I eyed this perspective and took a couple shot. Arnold had me pose there for about a minute before I got fed up and continued on.

The title came to mind because I think only bikers can ride through here.

I love gritty shots, don’t you? I’m stoked I was able to make the 50mm work in this situation.
