PEOPLE 231 – GOING TO WORK 3
September 30, 2016 24 Comments
Hahaha! well I have to hold my hands up here and admit that I’m making a virtue of necessity – this isn’t sharp (even by my standards!) and it never will be – but I do like the effect and hence here it is.
I was staggering around after early morning photography in town – which I always find a tiring place – when a bus went by with this young woman in the window and I turned at it and fired – there was time for just one shot. But whereas I’m sure my Nikons would have made a better job of this, the X-T1’s autofocus just wasn’t up to it … a bad workman blaming his tools??? 🙂 … and here is the result.
But I like it nonetheless. I’m somewhat into Paganism, not least because it is at ease with the concept of the sacred feminine, and this reminds me very much of images of women (and men) in Pagan literature, which either have branches and foliage sprouting from their heads, or are crowned with such greenery.
So, for better or for worse, here is something rather removed from the usual grey bus journey, the daily grind, into work.
X-T1 with 55-200 Fujinon lens at 305mm; 800 ISO; Temple Gate, Bristol; 19 July 2016.
