“As Tight As A Drum”

Apparently I am in an Orange mood this week. Did a little more “street shooting” at the North Market this past weekend and this line / shape combination hit my eye.

A Shot A Day – 2016(B) (021A of 365)-(21-01)

Sony Alpha A7RII, Zeiss 85 f/1.8 Batis

ISO 3200 – 1/80 @ f/8.0 – 85mm

Walking by this sign, attached to one of the stall walls at the North Market, it just grabbed my attention. As I was looking at it, I spent a little bit of time framing the final image up so I would have nice symmetry in the result, a division of the scene that fit the rule of thirds fairly well and a nice pop of color with some contrast.

Still working with the new Zeiss 85 f/1.8 Batis, I find that I am more and more impressed with how flat field and sharp this lens is. Very little post-production editing at all to get the image squared around the edges and a tiny bit of crop to even the distribution of the symmetry in the frame. Even in fairly flat light, the lens renders textures very well.
