#225, Stoplight

A stoplight caught in the sun's reflection cast onto a concrete stucco wall.

There's a certain level of nonsense around rangefinder photography, some of which involves not cropping images. (It must be the integrity of their precise viewfinders that people are trying to preserve. After all, printed photos and mounted slides always show the full area as well.) Photos with black edges on the narrow sides, like this one, have kept the full width of the scanned negative. The long edges come away with white borders, though, which aren't that tempting to include.

Transparency scans do have black edges on all four sides, but that's still not enough reason for me to use the much more `spensive stock.

No comments:

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.
