This was a fun photo to take. A photo outing with my club took me to the graffiti-covered alleys of Queen Street West, all of fifty metres from where I worked. I've been taking photos down this stretch for years. I decided that the photos I took that day would not look like anything anyone else would come away with.
This was taken with my 7-14 ultra-wide lens, which is a beautiful piece of glass that's unmatched in DSLRland. I metered the sky, and used my Olympus E-1 and FL-50 flash to get this photo. Since the FL-50 can't cover the widest focal length, I went the opposite way and tightened the spread as much as I could. I then used this to spotlight sections of the graffiti while under-exposing the rest of the scene.
