Project 365 | Day 24 Old and New

So tonight I headed back out into the abyss of darkness and cold to bring you guys another city shot from a different perspective.  I look up to the dark sky and see the lights in the office buildings, and I think to myself are there still people up there working?  Is that what it means to chase the American dream, work all day and night never having any time for the fun things in life, like wandering around with a camera in the freezing cold.  Then again it could be their passion to work the hours and get their piece of the pie.  Lets face it, not everyone is cut out to walk around in the freezing temps and blistering wind just to find something to ramble on about in a blog post.  So I guess they do what they do and I do what I do and we just have our own bit of happiness.  I guess what I’m trying to say is: Do what makes you happy and enjoy as much of your life as possible.

The title of this post is old and new, as this photo show some of the old architecture of the city as well as a bit of the new.

Let me know what you think.

More Fisheye Fun

Of all the lenses available I think the fisheye is the most fun to play with.  In my opinion the lens is a great addition to your lens collection. Be careful not to overuse it as it can loose some of its “luster” if used too often.

This one was shot with a Nikon 10.5mm fisheye on a D300.

Hope you enjoy!

Walking Past the Past

Tonights post is a photo I took in Pittsburgh of one of its beautiful churches.  I used a fisheye lens to get a different perspective and just got lucky with the woman walking through the frame.  I wonder how many times she has walked by this church and never took a moment to admire the beauty of the church.

Hope you enjoy.



Run Across the Street

Tonight’s’ post is a shot from Pittsburgh on Fifth Avenue.  I like to work with slow motion when shooting on the streets in the city.  I’ve been working on a series of photos all shot in the streets of the city.

This one is using a fisheye lens and slow shutter speed to get the motion of the business lady crossing the street.


The Tower of Oakland

Tonight I’m posting a couple of shots of a tower in Oakland, Pa.  This is near Heinz Chapel in Pittsburgh.  I found this building to be interesting as it seems a little out-of-place next to the modern building.  I don’t know what the building is or what it is used for, I just find it fascinating.

If you have any information about the building I would like to know a little more about it.
