My photography friends have commented how my photos tend to be precise and sharp. And, while I don’t think of my photos in that way, I guess enough people have said the same thing that there must be something to it. I suppose I do like a sense of orderliness and balance, even when taking pictures of messy street scenes. I generally like my buildings straight and I try to remove extraneous details. On the other hand, an inexplicable and messy snapshot can work too. That’s what I think of today’s photo.
The off kilter building, the flare and the imprecise snapshot feel is what I like. The image is neither precise or sharp. I has a Rain Man kinda feel, I think. My next frame is actually cleaner and without the flare, but lacks emotion. Imperfection can be beautiful.
I shot this with my travel zoom that has a 14-150mm focal range. Surprisingly, a number of my photos landed in the 20 to 22mm range, which gives a 40 to 44mm equivalent. While a 50mm is considered a normal focal length, my understanding is that 40 to 44mm is closer to what most people see natively.
This wonderful tower marks the entrance to a pedestrian subway that quickly took us closer the our destination, the KR Market. It’s just a tiled underground walkway that looked surprisingly like NYC subway stations, but without any trains. It allowed us to bypass a lot of the crowds.
