Walking home I got the camera out to shoot an old brick building with an old painted sign in homage to a nice shot by a friend and coworker. Then I decided to do a few more of those. And then I spotted some nice clouds. So I ended up shooting all the way home. These are all with the Zeiss 35mm Biogon f/2 lens at f/8 and f/11 except a couple in Post alley at f/2.8. I am please to get as good as I did as I forced myself to do this all with no chimping. And some were pretty tricky exposure situation. Some ended up fairly noisy as I raised the exposure as they were underexposed. However, with the kind of window glare I was shooting, it was that or vast tracts of blown out highlights. As the monochrom handles pushing shadows as well as it does, I felt the underexposure was an acceptable risk. Only a few of the shots were under enough to cause levels needing noise reduction, but there was one where it was enough to create some banding in the shadow ares that was beyond correction. Anyway, if you are one of my photo phreak friends they may be interesting for this, and for the amazing sharpness of this lens and the Monochrom combination. For the rest of you, there are some nice fluffy clouds, too. Oh, and the reason for the name of the post is in there, too. The set is POSTED HERE.

Signs. The Alaska Building and the Courtyard Marriott. Plus the edge of the Lyon Building.
