This is a very dark, very bleak image. It was taken late at night during the last snow storm in New York. The eery composition of the intense dark shadow on the left fading into the light from the street lamp creates this scene that looks deserted… semi-post-apocalyptic… snow covered picnic tables reminiscent of of the past when families and children used to be around putting them to good use. I also like that one solitary chair sitting out of place on its own… lots of irony there. This scene looks like something you would see in a movie, or imagine while reading a book like Cormac McCarthy’s The Road.
Taken with a Carl Zeiss 135mm f2 APO SONNAR ZE mount lens for Canon.
