Restaurant bars and lounges are amazing places to take photos if you have the courage to take out your camera with everyone watching. The endless rows of wine glasses and bottles, along with the vibrant colors and dim lighting, make for some of the most interesting photos. This is a very dramatically lit B&W photo of wine glasses hanging neatly from a ceiling rack. I love the unusual perspective and the shallow depth of field with only the front edge of the rims in sharp focus. It’s got a very artistic look to it, and I am dying to see this as either a very large 20×30 pearl print, or as a huge 30×45 floating canvas. Taken with a Zeiss 35mm f1.4 Distagon at f/4.5, 1/40 handheld.

This is a black and white abstract composition of Orly Genger’s rope installation in Maidson Square Park. The exhibit was actually about brightly colored ropes in yellow, red, and blue, but I thought that the crisp detail translated better for this close up composition. Over 100,000 pounds of rope was used in total, and it was definitely one of the more impressive installations I’ve seen.
