elucidate \ih-LOO-si-dayt\,

transitive verb:
To make clear or manifest; to render more intelligible; to illustrate; as, an example will elucidate the subject.

One last word of the day during my dad's visit to Raleigh. It was a pretty simple one; we shot through a 55mm f/1.2 (which means the aperture on that lens is extremely wide open, and that's why we can see so much through the lens).

To shoot, we went to probably the most popular place to take a photo of the city. It's the Boylan Street Bridge, outside the newly opened Boylan Street Brewpub, (which is pretty good, but I expect it'll be even better when the weather warms up and people can sit outside).

Not too much complication in today's word, so it didn't take long. Shot with Canon 10D and Sigma 28-70 f/2.8, probably the most versatile lens in my meager arsenal.

Shorter post today - I hope some of you have a good shot for elucidate, and if you do, go ahead and send it to me in an email. Have a good Tuesday!


  1. Cool shot man. I should have guessed Boylan Bridge, but the upside-downness must have thrown me off.

  2. I really love this one!!!
