Santa Fe Candles

Technical

Camera: Canon 1D MkII
ISO 400
Lens: 50mm f1.4
1/85 @ f 1.4

This is an image of candles at a church in Santa Fe. It’s a large tourist attraction downtown Santa Fe that has a staircase with no visible means of support. Legend has it that a carpenter came into town, built the staircase with meticulous craftsmanship and disappeared. It’s an interesting place to visit. The staircase itself was difficult to photograph due to the people inside the church and awkward angles. I didn’t get anything really usable and failed to capture the main attraction. In this instance, I failed to capture what I wanted but found these candles at the altar. They provided some nice lighting in an otherwise drab interior.
