the rotunda, again

I recently picked up an ultra wide-angle lens for my Leica M setup, and went over to the University to try it out, photographing some familiar areas. Other than the modest vignetting, the lens is pretty good—sharp across the frame at the apertures you’d be using.

As for the photos themselves, they’re fine. Like any well-trafficked monument, photographing the Rotunda is hard. There just isn’t that much to “say” about the structure anymore. But I keep trying, and I’ll likely keep trying.

downtown charlottesville

I’m always on the Downtown Mall for one reason or another, and since I always have my camera, it’s frequently an opportunity for photography. Here are some black and white shots, all digital, all edited in Lightroom. I’m a big fan of the last three, which have nice shadows and geometry.
