Normally when going out on the streets I use the 24-105. However on Sunday I decided to take the 16-35mm instead. I was intending to try and use the 16mm end for street shots. However as I was with my partner and some friends I did not have that much time to do street shots.
Moreover I found that using the 16mm end meant being very confrontational with the camera and its rather large lens almost touching the subject. Not something that I was so keen on that day. I did do two shots of cyclists using the 16mm end, this is one of them:
I love the effect at the wide end but one has to be very careful to avoid personal injury when getting in close. In this case I was standing right on the road edge and leaning out a bit. Safe enough and close enough to get that great 16mm look.
Two other shots were taken with the 35mm end .
The first is just a shot of a car park looking through a side window and is more about abstraction than anything else. I have deliberately darkened the outside wall to emphasise the yellow lines versus the sloping surfaces inside.
The second was of more cyclists. What I like about this image is not only the two cyclists but the two pedestrians in step further back in the image. Does something for me, hope you like it.
