I was rummaging through my color negative archives looking for macro photos when I came across a series of photos I took six or seven years ago (who can remember?) during a snowstorm. The way this summer has been baking us with the heat, I thought this would be a welcome change of pace. And color no less!
This shot was taken from the arcade of the building where I used to work in Phila. on the corner of 9th and Sansom looking east down Sansom Street.
Here’s another shot from the same arcade looking north along 9th Street toward Chestnut Street.
I took this shot outside the front entrance of the building. Interesting distortions. The buildings are certainly not leaning. There’s not much light so I was probably using my trick of holding the camera strap out tight to get a slow exposure. When I do that, I can’t see through the viewfinder and must rely on a bit of luck.
All of these images were taken with my little Olympus Stylus Epic that I carried with me most of the time back then. It’s a 35mm film camera with good glass (35mm/2.8).
