This tree has always drawn me to it early in the morning spring and fall. The light is low and the shadows are wonderful. The building across the street is a wonderful in it’s design. The out of focus clouds and building really give an interesting feel to this image. Leica M-P 240 w/Leica 35mm Summicron.
I’ve been trying to catch this fence just right for a while. A couple of weeks ago I managed to do it justice. Leica M-P 240 with 50mm Summilux.
This image was made awhile ago and I just came across it. I was out shooting with an intern on assignment for the group of newspapers I worked for at the time as a Photo Editor. I was teaching this intern about light and how B&W can be such a powerful tool. This tree had white bark that could not be ignored. I had the Leica M-P 240 and the 50mm Summilux with me and worked on this composition knowing that I would convert to B&W since the only real color was the sky. The texture on the tree just popped once it was converted.
