On my my last visit (which I hope won’t be my last visit) to Austin, Nevada I walked the short mile or so up and down main street shooting the buildings. Most of those shots were fairly mundane. After a cursory pass through the resulting, I pretty much moved on to more exciting images. So I was thrilled to find this one when I revisited the catalog.
The composition (finally) caught my eye. I liked what the 14mm prime lens did to the lines and angles – further distorted my the fact that the road was going uphill to the right. I liked the way the hard angles played against chaotic twisted branches of the trees. And I liked all the little things I picked up as my eyes wandered through the frame – the ‘antique’ sign, the things hanging on the store walls, the vault door, the angel weathervane and the church in the background.
Yes. I like this image!
