Lonesome Buddy

"Hiding 2-by-4" by Wes Aldridge

This shot was taken in front of the Old Spaghetti Factory on 2nd Ave. in downtown Nashville. I was hunting for a shot, and there he stood all alone. He had probably been part of some kind of excitement previously in the night, but now he is all by his lonesome. What if an empty Budweiser 2-by-4 could talk? Oh, I would love to hear his sad story. Now, he stands there, clothed only by a paper sack purchased from a convenience store.

Settings: film speed of ISO 400 shot with 50mm lens at aperture f/1.8 handheld at a shutter speed of 1/13th of a second.
