Part of the reason I haven’t posted recently is that I was trying to use the 70-200 lens that I rented as much as I could, in between interruptions. Got some good images, including this one from the Flickrmeet on Sunday.
There’s something about an image like this that has an appeal: the bright sunlight (here with a polarizing filter); the angles and lines; the colors; the way the near horizontals end in a jumble of uprights and diagonals. It’s so abstracted that you need to take a moment to read the shapes into recognizable things. The hard light brings out the textures and details of the surfaces, making the image deep visually, in spite of the overall flatness of the planes.
