Sunset at the Howard Theater - Taylor, Texas

Sunset at the Howard Theater – Taylor, Texas

I went to Taylor a week ago on Friday. I was there to see my friend perform in a band, give support, and take pictures — of course. It’s a decent hike from home and work and I was hesitant to go at first, but I’m glad I went. I’ll feature photos from the concert in an upcoming post. But, for today, a picture of small-town Texas.

I arrived at the hight of sunset and 30 minutes before my friend’s set. I took the opportunity to shoot the now-familiar downtown. I’ve been to Taylor several times over the years, but often not at night and not during a colorful sunset. The photograph looked good but this Art-ish image looks better. A technicolor, simulated watercolor of downtown Taylor.

I made the picture with the Fuji X-T10 and the 56mm f1.2. I’ve always thought of the 56mm as my portrait lens, but I’m finding it surprisingly versatile. I would have never thought to shoot streetscapes with it. But, unlike big city Austin, the diminutive Taylor buildings worked well with this framing.
