Washington Heights


no images were found

Stir craziness got the better of me today. It had been a couple of weeks since I had been out to shoot recreationally, so I stole an hour for a quick solo photo walk at the mills. I brought one lens: the 80-200 f2.8. Is a great lens that seldom gets the exercise it needs.

The long lens was refreshing. It forced me to isolate features of the buildings in a way I couldn’t with any of my go-to wide lenses. Since I went with a “new” lens I decided to try to get out of my comfort zone in terms of composition and processing. With the clear blue sky providing a clean backdrop, I thought I’d go the minimalist route on a few shots.

This one is of the top floor of the facade of the Washington Mill. Its one of the empty buildings in the area, with an uncertain future.

I hope you like it.

  1. Stir crazy paid off! Love the simplicity… with the broken windows and weathered facade, the building has a story to tell and you tease that here… well done!

  2. Nice post for sure, and great shot, I need to adopt the take only one lens theory when I go out and give it a try, sweet collab entry as well!
