Downtown at Dusk

Franklin County Courthouse - Olympus E-M5 with Panasonic 7-14mm f/4

Went downtown after a long day of work to take a few pictures.  I wanted to get some shots of the new County Courthouse, which is a pretty cool building.  Got there shortly before sunset which gave me some good light.  Then, as I walked back to the car, which I parked at Bicentennial Park, where they have really cool huge public fountains to run and play in, I saw that the fountains also can do ‘misting’.  This created a wonderful deep fog filled sculpture garden with playing children and the sun setting behind.  It was a great thing to see and capture.

I went along the Main Street Bridge afterwards, but there weren’t any real opportunities last night; at least, not that I hadn’t taken a hundred times before.  I didn’t want to stay until night, so I packed up and headed home, but I was glad to get a few good shots along the way.

    Nice set of pictures, Jordan. I enjoy both your writing and photography and it would be interesting to read which lenses you prefer using on the E-M5 and what you´ve tried out?

    I currently use E-P3 with 12/2, 20/1.7, 25/1.4, 45/1.8, 9-18 & 14-140. Pretty happy with the lens setup but have some thoughts. Leaning towards replacing EP3 with E-M5.

    – 20/1.7 vs 25/1.4 = Both are great and have very different qualities. Should really let one go…
    – 7-14 vs 9-18 = Wider angle vs compact size
    – 14-140 vs 45-175 X = Could the light X telezoom be an alternative to the superzoom
