Great street series- all are nice, clear, and well-composed.

what i find intriguing about this series (and other abandoned series) is what happened?
the unknown history(ies) are thought provoking and unnerving for some reason... maybe it's just another well composed series, dave m

great series, but the 2nd steals the show IMO. Some of these show off the 31 in it's full beauty.
Well done

Thanks guys - this is a little strip hotel/motel that has probably been left to rot for about 10 years. A couple of the rooms were even open and I've got some shots from them I will post later. The FA31 just eats stuff like this for dinner; couldn't ask for a better lens for the subjects IMO.

The ordinary made different - good eye for these street views and good PP work.
Fine rendition from that fine lens...
