This shop used to be Foyles. When a crappy London Gifts shop that went in afterwords they cleverly re used some of the letters… Great light on the day too.
This post is sort of an odd one, at least compared to other recent posts. It’s just a couple of shots that showcase a Contax lens. Earlier this week I was at a shopping mall the architectural practice I work for has been amending over the last couple of years. They demonstrate how the Sony A7r allows me to lift shadows and how nicely the 18mm Distagon handles architectural subjects, thanks to it’s low distortion. I did, however, have to correct for the vignette, even with the lens stopped down to f/8.
The last image is one of the straight out of camera JPEGs, so that you can see how much I’ve been able to pull from the RAW file.
living in a seaside town, the first discarded ice cream cones are a sure indicator summer is approaching!
