Graphically Speaking

I really enjoy the graphic qualities presented here. Essentially monochrome with a jolt of orange, this image has straight lines, curved lines, triangles, short lines, long lines, thick lines, thin lines, organic shapes, man-made shapes, dark tones, light tones, large blank area, and small detailed areas. It was fun to make the image even though I was being buffeted by very strong winds! I was shooting across a highway in order to get the composition I was after and got a lot of strange looks from people travelling by. It’s as if they have never seen someone with a camera on a tripod. I think they wouldn’t have even hardly glanced over my way if I had of been holding up my phone! 🙂

I had a chance to try the new Olympus 75mm f/1.8 lens this evening. I had only a short time to play with it and really only managed one image worth posting. Whew – check out the bokeh! That is some great OOF. I really wish it could focus closer and wasn’t so noisy focusing though. It really chatters a lot.
