A Mysterious Morning

Two weeks ago, I got up rather early and went out to take a few photos before work, as I often do.  It was a very dark and somewhat foggy morning, and everything was calm.  The spring greens hadn’t quite sprouted yet, and so I went out knowing I’d be shooting for black and white.  Found this composition near one of the railroad bridges.  If you look carefully, you can see the light from a train crossing the bridge in the distance.  Click to enlarge.

    The incredible sharpness enhances the mood of this fine B&W pic. Thanks for posting it.

    If I’d been there, I’d’ve been frozen with terror until a train flattened me out. Great shot. If only there were some way our photographic legacies could be preserved for remote generations. Vetting panels might judge fitness for preservation, issuing licenses to approved contributors. Captioning and narrative expositions would be imperative, since these multiply the historical value of a photograph by a huge factor. (I’m musing like mad at 5:15 A.M. on a cold Brooklyn night. In the circumstances, making sense is not guaranteed.)

    I’m grateful for your review of the Panasonic 12-35 f/2.8. At $1300, the infinity-focus-edge-sharpness-deficit gags me like a spoon. Let’s go Germanic and whump up hyphenated noun clumps like there’s no tomorrow. Call it clump-whumping. I better quit now before I start telling Yiddish jokes.

    All the best,
