Fences and Friends

I was out recently and saw this mural with the scaffolding in front of it and it looked to me like two friends reuniting with a fence in-between them. And it reminded me of how today we have some many people obsessed with fences and walls.

I was out in the Beaches last Sunday and snapped this image quickly before the motorcyclist could drive off, so I wasn’t looking closely at the background. When I scanned the negative and looked at the image I was amused by the mismatch of foreground and background.

A Lens I Haven’t Used Much

Today’s image was shot using a lens I tend not to use much, but should take out more often: my Leitz Elmar 90mm/f4. This is an old Leica screw mount lens that fits on my Voigtlander Bessa R2M via an adapter. It’s prone to flare but with a lens hood it’s pretty good.
