After Sunset, Lamar Blvd Bridge – Austin, Texas

I take — perhaps irrational — effort to not repeat the same picture on this blog. Only a couple of photos have been used more than once to fit the narrative. As a photography blog, I always want fresh visuals. Sometimes, though not often, I have similar compositions, however. Today is one such example. You might have seen framings like this (here and here) of the Lamar Blvd Bridge.

There are differences. And taking pictures of the same subject under different conditions can be instructive. Today’s version is the most minimal. With blue and gold, the color pallet and framing are exceptionally simple. Remarkably there are no cars, boats, or clouds to detract from its purity. It’s my most moody and mysterious version yet, opting to keep a shadowy exposure.

I shot this without a tripod with the new GFX 50S II. I zoomed out to the maximum 70mm (55.5mm equivalent), creating a tighter and simpler crop. A tack-sharp image at 1/5th of a second. Hooray for in-body image stabilization.
