No real theme going here. Just random shots as I am closing out the series.
I could not think of a catchy title and its to be perfectly honest a crappy picture but I like the colors in it. This was shot on a Minolta 28mm 3.5 manual focus through my car window at a light which you can just see turning green in the right hand corner. So I had to manually focus and hope for the best. I reviewed the shots taken with this lens and it might be on its way out as its a bit “soft” even when stopped down. I’ll go through the images closer and make a call before a camera show this weekend. At least enjoy the colors which is what this image is about.
I have been all over the place this week with photos and I have shot at least 500-700 images since last Sunday but I had a side project that required me to leave earlier than I normally venture forth and I had the Sigma DP1 with me. This is just the stairs leading to the second floor of my condo building and I saw the sun and the shadows and took the shot. This is the type of stuff the DP1 excels at because of the way the sensor works. Its all about the shadows, the light, and the texture.
While everyone seems to love the flowers I needed a break. These images were shot at the same time with the sun being bright in the sky. To be perfectly honest I am just goofing around here which is why the image sizes are all over the map and there isn’t even a consistent editing style. I did debate removing the pigeons from Grant’s head I kinda like the irreverence of the whole thing.
I knew some of these images were going to be in black and white when I took them. I think it sometimes brings out textures or features that would otherwise be missed in color. There is a tonality to black and white that color lacks if that makes sense. Some of these images were shot on a manual focus Minolta 50mm 3.5 macro lens that I totally forgot I owned. It doesn’t go to 1:1 like the Olympus 60mm but it does a decent job I think.
