A Tale of Two Cities
Lens: smc PENTAX-FA 31mm F1.8AL Limited Camera: K-1 Photo Location: London ISO: 6400 Shutter Speed: 1/60s Aperture: F2.8 
Posted By: ffking, 08-20-2018, 12:38 AM

I've got nearly four and a half thousand pictures up of Flickr that seemed like a good idea at the time, but what I'm loving about posting here is saying"these are the ones I really like" - So I'm not trying to impress anybody, just saying "This is me".

The FA 31mm Ltd is my total go-to street lens, never more so than at night when it's fast aperture and widish field of view make composing with the OVF easy. Here.I really like the way Hungerford rail bridge separates the warm light of the little low-rise wooden stalls of the Christmas market from the rather eerie futuristic lights of the buildings and construction cranes beyond.

I love this; the tall towers and the small kiosks.

Thanks - another thing to mention is that this increased my confidence in ISO6400 wit the K-1 - scenes like this work pretty well.

Having Christmas stalls and cranes in the same photo does provide an interesting effect.

Towering over the masses
like the wings of a megalithic sentinel,
the city dares the little people,
who look up and embrace it.

This is thought provoking and very colorful. I love night shots.

Wonderful contrast in scale and color between the high and the low, with the bridge providing the perfect separator. Great shot. Thanks.
