A Pattern of Neglect

A Pattern of Neglect

Washington, D.C.

Taken at Union Station. I had originally wanted to photograph the full arcade, but first there was a big cable stretching across it that had never been there before. Then the images I did take -- without any crowds, for a change -- were distorted in a way unusual even for the H5, which always produces severe architectural distortion. But I decided I liked this one, and although I had taken several trying to eliminate the man (who appeared to be a homeless person), I found that he added something I liked to it.

Sony DSC-H5
1/100s f/6.3 at 18.6mm iso80 full exif

Lovely composition and harmony between the colour tones, excellent textures and wonderful light and contrast..I just wonder if a bw version would be stronger .
