Victoria's Light

I walked along the Providence River today.  A place normally bustling with people, even on a dull and rainy day like today, was bereft of people.  This man’s red umbrella stood out from the bridge over the river and I walked to his resting spot.  He and I were the only two people on the western bank of the river.   I think only 2 or 3 people walked by me during the hour of my walk.

Kennedy Plaza is the City’s bus transportation hub.  It is normally full of people waiting for buses, drugs or trouble.  Today, it was quiet.

On the way to the other side of the river, I stopped at the Irish Famine memorial.  I am sure my Irish ancestors came here to escape the famine’s impact.  The sad sculpture gave me pause.

I used the Nikkor 105mm 2.5 today.  It was not a very good day to shoot with the light so flat and a deadening mist from the rain.  This old lens functions fine even though it’s not a bathing beauty.  The renderings are quite nice.  The next test is its bokeh.

35mm Film Shootist

Hi I'm Martin Smith, a amateur photographer that likes to shoot solely film. I use black & white with the odd colour image thrown in and mainly use a Leica M4-2 & M3 with Summicron 35mm and 50mm lenses. I tend to shoot anything I like, objects, scenes, landscape or street life. My film of choice now is Fomapan 100 Classic.
