Stairs and Windows (Five Photographs)

I was walking down this well-walked street of old mansions trying to get clear photos of the elements I was I interested in. I got a few odd looks; somehow I seemed more interesting than what I was shooting. People take things for granted. The reflections in the windows against the stark architecture looked like abstract paintings. At some point I may just focus on windows. These photos took more time than most to process, if only because there were many options on how to approach them. It took me some time to decide on how much detail, contrast, and the amount of color filtering to correct color casts.

  2. They’re great photos. And while it’s not the gear that matters most, I am usually curious about the gear. What did you shoot these with?

      • Nice. I’d like to get my hands on one of those 18mm lenses.

        • I swapped it out for the 16. Wide angle is a lot of fun.

          • Cool. I have the 27mm pancake lens for the XT2, and even that seems fairly wide angle, so I’m looking forward to trying a 16 or 18.

  3. These are very fine, Victor. It is a pity they don’t make them like them used to.
