Brick and Iron

Day 48 and the furnace is still running. So sorry, but no new furnace parts to photograph today.

Got a chance for a bit of a walk-around today, and I went back to a spot that I noticed a few days before. I would have shot it then, but I left my SD card at home that day.

So, this is a shot where I was trying to capture some interesting lines and a few spots of colour. Not sure how I did, but here it is:

Brick and Iron

These stairs are the rear fire escape of the old Odeon Theatre in downtown Winnipeg. The entire structure is cobwebbed with these, and I'm pretty sure if there was a fire, you'd die just trying to figure how the hell to get off the fire escapes. This crop was selected to highlight the rusted red doors, otherwise there just wouldn't be any tone at all.

I'm on the fence about this shot. I like the subject, but I'm not sure what more I could do to make it pop more.

ISO 100, f/8, 1/50th shutter. Shot with the kit lens at 55mm.

  1. I think this is pretty terrific. Maybe upping the contrast and red tones would make it pop a bit more, but the subject and framing are are really nice and interesting.
