WE35: The Barbershop


I’ve never fancied myself a scientist. I tend to think that everything that happens is just “magic!” But here I am, wearing a lab coat, shooting with a 35mm (eq) lens and recording my findings.

It’s called the WE35 project. It is something that my good friends at The Photo Frontier have started, spawned from their 35mm of Coastline project.  The “35” in WE35 is for the 35mm lens, or equivalent field of view (FOV). Don’t ask me what the WE stands for. I’m a scientist, dammit, not an acronym!

WE35 dovetails nicely into a project I’ve had in mind for a while – photographing the storefronts in the City of Lawrence, Massachusetts. I’ll have more details about the impetus for WE35 and this particular project soon. But for now, here is my first entry and my first 35mm observation.

Camera: Olympus OM-D E-M1
Lens: 17mm Zuiko f/1.8 lens (34mm FOV)

Observation: Stealthy — A small prime lens attracts less attention. Plain and simple.
