wabasha and 7th place
I don’t really have a favorite camera lens or a go-to lens as they are sometimes called but I use my wide angle lens often for landscapes and architecture shots. It isn’t an easy lens to use. It needs to be held level, it is heavy and the photographs are not very sharp at lower shutter speeds. I have always has a love hate relationship with the dang thing.
As for the building in the picture it is an old one and houses Candy Land which has been there since the 1930’s. There is an old theater in the building and I think there are still apartments above the stores. The building is a favorite among the downtown pigeons too.
Light rail construction on Cedar street. The rail will run right past a couple of historic churches and the Minnesota public radio building. I wonder if we will be able to hear the trains go by when we listen to the radio?
I used my trusty little panasonic point and shoot camera to take the picture and then I tweaked it a but on my iPad. It is about the rust that is what caught my eye when I drove by. I bought a new camera last week. I am pretty excited about it but between working with real estate clients and photography clients I have not gotten to play with it much.
This is Jackson Street in downtown St. Paul, taken while it was snowing and processed on my iPad using three apps. I could not replicate this but I had fun with it.
I have not had a lot of time for photography so a I went on appointements over the weekend I took some snap shots here and there. This shop caught my eye it always does. Photo was taken with a phone and edited on an iPad.
My collection of light rail transit construction photos is growing quickly. They are fun to take and I think they are far more interesting when there are people in them. I hope they don’t mind . . .
