(926) Cityscape II

Another same-but-different photo, this time posted three years after the original.


(925) White Script on Orange II

This is one of those same-but-different photos.

This and the first one were both shot with an 85mm prime on my D700 at f/5.6. But the trick is that I own two different 85mm Nikkors - the f/1.8 AF-D and the f/2.8 PC-E tilt/shift.

(My only other F-mount lens is a 50/1.8 shoot-through body cap.)

You'd think that there'd be some governing body to stop me from getting my hands on a lens that lets me force the world to be square and level, but there isn't.


Lenses Included

Another long exposure, this time 15 seconds at f/16.


(924) txting

Thirteen seconds at Yonge and Dundas on a Friday afternoon.

(This photo is an exception to my usual black+white=IR rule.)

Cycling on Front

The world of competitive amateur cycling at the Toronto Criterium.

Cycling on Bloor

The idealized world of the clothing store Club Monaco.


(923) Exhortation

It's not that I can't shoot other subjects, it's that I don't want to.


My 600th post, figuratively speaking.


White Script on Orange

I have an orange suitcase, an orange sling bag, an orange umbrella, and an orange-and-navy messenger bag. Only the last one is actually because I like the colour, the rest are simply for visibility.


Carpenter Ant

Nothing remarkable here, except that I do have to say that the tilt-shift macro lens is a lot of fun.

This is Camponotus Pennsylvanicus, as far as I can tell.

I have broken the links to hundreds and hundreds of photos, which will take a long time to repair. The workaround is to replace "photo.matthewpiers" in the link URL with "matthewpiers.smugmug". Awkward, but only temporary.

This is happening because I have revamped matthewpiers dot com. More of what I write and photograph will be going there, so check it out as well.
