    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Lovely shots everyone! It is always interesting to see how spoiled we M users are with wide angle lenses. Rangefinders really are just so much better on this front -- the lack of distortion, while still keeping sharpness and a nice look. They just tend to have more character than most SLR wide angles I have seen (and I am even including Leica R in that...I think my Zeiss 18mm and 25mm are much nicer than the Leica 19mm I have for the R).
    Here is one with Zeiss 25mm...not really architecture, but it keeps lines straight!
    My photos are here: http://www.stuartrichardson.com and more recent work here: http://stuartrichardson.tumblr.com/ Please have a look at my book!

    Why not really architecture? The Diner is an American Icon in architecture!

    I miss the setting and the light more than I miss the food! Though the food was certainly not bad...

    You need to try the Leica 15 Elmarit. It just doesn't get better than this!

    Thanks, and for a change of pace, using my Zeiss 21/2.8 (effective 28mm, a useful street focal length) here's getting close to a group of people while still seeing what is going on in and around them. On the beach near Taba, border between Israel and Egypt on the Red Sea:

    I am guessing that is no conversion -- that looks like view camera work to me...

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    scanned from a 4x5 tri-x neg on the trusty epson 700. 90mm lens on a 4x5 is about a 25mm equivalent for 35mm film as i recall

    i may play around re-scanning wet mount to see how it works

    Well, it's a beauty.

    A couple from a recent trip to Germany, using my favorite lens for architecture, a CV12. I particularly like the way it does not distort straight lines. Roger

    Very nice. That lens is magic. Very interesting subject matter as well.

    this was ment in a creative (not destructive) way, sorry if it sounded bad.

    and the "we" was ment in an inclusive (not exclusive) way; we photographers, artisans, humans, animals ...

    I know the canonical restaurant picture involves a Noctilux and very shallow focus, but sometimes a wide angle shot is just more appropriate:

    Helen,

    Have you ever had any trouble from security personnel while photographing buildings in NY? I have in San Francisco, and I understand others have elsewhere.

    Oh hello Lloyd
    I have actually had no problems with shooting Buildings
    Mind You , I have not done Government buildings and the NY Stock Exchange on weekends ( when its Closed).

    I have a Great Way with talking my way In & Out of Situations
    and that Feminine Mystique called Charm works Wonders
    with the occasional touch of ones hand on someones Shoulder....

    have had a few run ins with shooting People on the Street
    but luckily resolved those scenarios with a & Good Cheer.

    Best- H

    Re: ARCHITECTURE & WIDE ANGLE LENSES

    Santiago Calatrava designs bridges with a characteristic structure that resembles a harp, and naturally the City of David would like to have one. But we have no rivers to cross. So our city fathers decided to engage Mr. Calatrava to do a bridge to carry pedestrians and a future light rail system across the main road entrance to the city. This makes for a rather accessible and human scale environment covering several blocks, but visible from many points in the new city. Even as the construction was begun, the eventual stringed structure was simulated with a bizarre combination of a temporary crane and strings of Christmas lights:



    which were soon replaced by the real thing:





    The mingling of old and new Jerusalem is of course a little jarring



    The whole gallery is here .

    I think you have to credit Calatrava for figuring out how to snake this bridge through the blocky stone (and concrete) buildings. The "Power Lines" are kind of magical, but they only hold up the bridge, from one side, as the other floats free.

    The bridge is even visible from Liftah, a ruined village deep in a ravine below the city's entrance, but you need to wait for afternoon light to get this view:

    Rick - it is actually better that way: it is smaller, so it doesn't use up bandwidth while the whole page is loading, and if we like it, when we click on it, we get the full-size version: win-win!
