The colors turned out to be so striking in this abstract shot of a graffitied city hand railing that I had to share this with you. The deep, vibrant browns and greens set apart by a perfectly horizontal horizon make this a special one for me. The impact that this photo has even though the subject matter is so simple and ordinary reminds me of another one of my personal favorites, the limited edition ‘intraordinary’ photograph.
This is straight out of the camera with no post-processing. Taken with a lens that I no longer own, a Canon 70-200mm f2.8mm II zoom lens. The 70-200/2.8II was a pretty phenomenal lens for a zoom, and I did enjoy using it, but it’s limitations compared to my other prime lenses didn’t justify the expense of keeping it. The newest version of this lens is a must-have for any documentary photographer though since the image quality and bokeh is truly top notch for a zoom lens.
