I did a limited edition of black and white prints of the Empire State Building from various perspectives throughout the city, but continue to find myself drawn back to it whenever I catch a side glimpse of it during my walks in the city. So I have begun a new series of images on the same theme, this time as platinum prints. Here are a few I did in just the past few days taken with my ever-ready Fuji X-T1 and 18-55mm lens. When the new Fuji 18-135mm becomes available I might be tempted to switch to it as my walk-around lens. It will only add 4 ounces to the weight and one extra inch to the length.
There is something to be said about photographing the same subject over and over again and causing a concentration more on the composition than on the object itself.
|This photograph and the one below were taken from almost the same vantage point on two different days, yet they are completely different compositions of the same subject.|
|A jet contrail provided a strong compositional line lasting only a few moments before evaporating. I had only enough time to capture a few exposures before it was gone.|
