This is a sundial on the facade of a hotel in Rovinj, Croatia. We went there for some sun and warmth and we were not disappointed.
I was pretty sure I’d taken that image before. It took me a while to find it and when I did, I recognized that the other image was much more dramatic and arguably better. Well, that boils down to the difference between 9 mm vs 17 mm I guess 🙂
This is what happens when I use a manual lens for a week: I invariably switch lenses for the next week.
It’s interesting, some people enjoy the slow-down induced by manual lenses, but in general I don’t. I see something that catches my eye, I want to take an image quickly, and while doing so, I want to concentrate on framing only.
Slowing the process down does not make my images better. It does not cause me to spend more time thinking about the image and its intended composition. It just distracts me. How’s it for you?
This is a detail from a shop’s facade. I’ve originally taken it in horizontal orientation, but it didn’t start working until I turned it to vertical.
