This is an image taken during the Scott Kelby World Wide Photowalk in Austin Texas. We started at the Texas State Capitol building and made our way south along Congress Avenue, which is the main north-south street in downtown.
Usually, I use my wide-angle lens or maybe my 50mm to do some street shooting when I’m downtown. On this day, I decided to test out my new Canon 70 – 200 F4 IS lens. The telephoto gave me a different point of view which was a neat change of pace from my previous downtown photo excursions.
The flag is flying atop a historic building that is located on the corner of Congress Avenue and 6th Street. I was attempting to contrast the historic brick structure against the grid of the modern skyscraper. I also like how the stripes of the US Flag worked with the window grid of the modern office tower.
