There goes my 401k


So I took this picture the day the market tanked about 4%… Little did I know it had a lot further to go!  Needless to say, this was shot down on wall st.  I added a little prop dollar bill so it has some meaning/context (otherwise it would just be yet another stock exchange photo).  When confronted with a familiar scene such as this, I’d always like to throw in something to make it more interesting.  I can think of lots ideas for this shot.  This was shot at 14mm and at an angle to emphasize chaos.
