Was out and about in Newcastle today working on fairly standard architectural photography views with heavy and slow kit ( tripod , D800 , 24 mm PC lens). I was setting up a shot ( the wall and the reflection in the building’s window had caught my eye ) when this lovely young lady, Elena, if I caught her name right, offered to go around me and said “I hate it when people pass in front of my shots” to which I replied that I sometimes liked it when people became part of a photograph. We had a lovely brief chat about her own photographic pursuits and she accepted to pose against the wall. I didn’t have a card (unprofessional I know ) so she wrote my long and complicated name on her hand. I hope she finds this blog and is happy with the photo. And of course I wish her the best for all her projects . The photograph is stitched from two frames . As for the second photograph, also stitched, it was taken by the Library. In a way, although in colour, both these photos are akin to the La Piscine rue David d’Angers and to Près de la Gare du Nord captured on film around twenty years ago in Paris.The resolution of the D800 with that particular lens of two images stitched is an invitation to print these big.
