‘Lincoln’ Leads Oscar Field With 12 Nominations

On January 1 of this year the Emancipation Proclamation reached a 150 year mark. This act by Lincoln was a wartime act and to truly abolish slavery further legislative action was required. The movie 'Lincoln' dramatizes what was required to pass the 13th amendment and if you have not seen it, you should. Despite the miniscule value of the penny today, I still love the connection between Lincoln and his image on our lowest denomination coin. This image was very much inspired by the headline and the fact that I knew I was going to do a macro today. I arranged some pennies and mounted my Nikkor 85mm macro. At first I was using natural light but Claire had a candle burning and I liked the warm light it was casting. I shot at a high f stop to get depth of field: f22, 15 sec.

I like the soft glow that the candle made and that there are some key things that stand out for me in this picture. Liberty and "In God We Trust". I would say a large part of Americans do not trust nor even believe in God and yet it was at least at one point in our Country - foundational. Liberty - freedom and yet you and I both know that freedom is not free.

Dave, this says it all. Yes, have intended to see the movie and have been afraid it would move on before we could see it. With the nominations today, I feel sure it will be around for several more weeks. The candlelight reflections make a very nice touch to your picture.
