The sign says “595 Fifth Avenue”, which would put this somewhere around 48th Street. What caught my attention was the size of mural, which you get a sense of from the much smaller figures passing by. At a quick glance it looks as if the picture is over-saturated – but it isn’t. The mural is just very bright and contrasty.
Taken in February, 2012 in New York with a Sony NEX-5n and 50mm f1.4 Canon lens in Leica Thread Mount. The more I look back at the these pictures the more I like this lens. I’ll have to give it a try again. I didn’t know how to use focus magnification and focus peaking in those days so I didn’t do a very good job at wide apertures. I think I’d be able to do a better job now.
