360 Bridge Geometry

360 Bridge Geometry - Austin, Texas

360 Bridge Geometry – Austin, Texas

I made it to the middle of the 360 bridge, after showing the approach yesterday. I used the impossibly small Panasonic GM1 with the 12-32mm kit lens. The zoom lens doesn’t have much of a range, but it’s very compact and matches perfectly with the camera body.

I set the focal length to 32mm, which gives a 64mm equivalent view. It was still enough to create a slightly compressed view and a perspective of the bridge that I’ve never seen. This wasn’t pre-planned, and I felt lucky stumbling on this framing.

The leading lines and the vertical and horizontal elements create a very geometric view of the 360 bridge. They are like an abstract sculpture that is overplayed on top of the surrounding landscape.

Note: I just sent out the May 2020 newsletter about an hour ago. It was a quiet Memorial Day holiday for my family and a very productive one for me. There’s always a sense of relief and accomplishment whenever I finish up a newsletter. Click here if you want to subscribe to the next issue, and to see all the past issues.
