It’s in the Details

The past couple posts have been urban night landscapes, and I wanted to mix it up a bit by throwing in some shots that are more abstract in nature… shots that focus in on certain details that would have normally been overlooked. These were all taken on Friday night whilst wandering around downtown Peterborough.

This first shot is of the ceiling inside the drill hall of the Peterborough Armoury where we were permitted to come in and shoot. I got lots of photos of the hall and cannons inside, but it wasn’t until I looked straight up just before heading out the door that I noticed the lines.

36mm; f/5; 1/25s; ISO 800

This next shot is of a screw on the back of one of the two cannons inside the armoury. To give a sense of scale, the width of that screw is about 2 inches and is used to change the angle of the cannon. I like both the contrast and the depth of field.

55mm; f/5.6; 1/25s; ISO 800

This shot is of the walkway up to St. Peter in Chains church. I was trying to highlight the texture difference between the two materials.

40mm; f/5.3; 1s; ISO 100

I randomly took the shot below not expecting much, but noticed the great bokeh when I got home.

48mm; f/5.6; 1/25s; ISO 800

This last shot is of a door latch inside the armoury. I simply liked the age of both door and latch and was drawn in by the contrast of the metal on wood.

34mm; f/5; 1/25s; ISO 1600
