Revisiting

Ah, Friday! I thought you would never get here!

On Friday nights I usually treat myself to a dinner and/or a tall ice coffee. Tonight I headed over to Life Alive for some wholesome goodness.

Of course, I have my camera in tow. And once again the stairs at Mass Mills grabs my attention. I am trying to capture something about these stairs though I am really not sure what. And even though I don't know what, I think I am getting closer. Yeah, it makes no sense, but here's tonight's keeper. I like how I was angled tonight and the light seemed a bit different. I may seem closer to what I am looking for because perhaps one's eye has so many different places it can start (and tonights lighting really made that apparent), it follows the same direction of twists and eventually stops at the same spot (in the center).
 

The stairs at Mass Mills

 
Sovereign Bank Wall 2009

I visited an old wall tonight. The image on the left is a photo I took in July 2009. In March of this year it was selected as the First Place Winner in the Lowell Photography Contest sponsored by the National Park Service. I was quite honored.

 
 
 
The image on the right is what I captured tonight. I was using a different lens tonight, not my best one, (my best one is being borrowed by a friend). But even by not looking at the wall through the view finder, I did notice it looked different. Everything looked softer, the oranges were not as intense. The shadow of the building not as crisp. In fact, it had the double edge, which I couldn't figure out what was causing that. Even so, I couldn't resist.
I do think the lens made a big difference. I may head over tomorrow night and experiment with several manual lenses I have.
