photo taken with zeiss 21mm f2.8 distagon lens

I love intense color that seems out of place with the rest of the scene. Colors that catch my eye always invite me over to take a look… and usually a photo.

These striking red umbrellas are put up every day right outside Four Freedoms Park next to a health-conscious food truck (that serves the most delicious mint iced tea on the planet by the way!). The park was about to close and the picnic area emptied out just in time to grab this photo. The contrast of the color with the evening shadows and the monochrome background that just is what the park is all about worked out wonderfully.

Taken with a Zeiss 21mm f2.8 lens, which is probably the one I would keep if someone told me that I had to get rid of all my lenses except one… It’s a true masterpiece of precision in every way.
