Last week, a bizarre rise in temperature melted away snow drifts, and broke records with reports of 65 degree weather in upstate NY. The next day, temperatures began their usual descent and the wind blew bitterly, but it didn’t stop my cousin Christopher and I from exploring city streets tucked away on the west side of Syracuse. I had rented a 10-22mm lens and was pleasantly surprised with the results. Today’s post includes many shots of the graffiti and shots from looking through fences. I really liked the perspective of shooting through fences, and the wide angle lens definitely helped capture the depth of the graffiti. While on our adventure, we ran into an artist, Jian, from 601 Tully who very willingly posed for me in one of the most colorful alleyways I’ve ever seen. Even Christopher struck a pose there!
It really inspired me to get out more and shoot in this cold weather. So many treasures are waiting to be discovered!
