When was the last time you look you on your city street? I know you never noticed anything different. But when you have a camera in you hands, the world is full of fascinating things to capture. They I capture the building or the light? I was drawn to the light and the colour of the building. The master Jay Meisel said light, color and gesture. Light goes first and if you see the light your photograph will certainly improve in leaps and bounce. Capture light as an subject in itself in another word.
If this building was without the afternoon light hitting on it to bring out the colour then it t simply a a dull building under a winter afternoon. But look for this kind of stuff and hopefully you could see the beautiful in the ordinary when the light was right.
Photography is an art of capturing light, if you see the light then everything seems magical. That's why we're crazy to spend the big dollars on the lens to best capture the light. This was shot with my new lens the Panasonic Lumix 12-35mm f2.8. So far I totally in love with this lens. I don't think it's going to leave my camera from now on.
