Metal, Brick, and Glass

I don’t use my D300 / 14mm combo that much anymore. Most of the shots I are en route to somewhere, and the combo is just too bulky to be carrying around. Many of my shots are taken with the back camera of my iPhone 6. Or, if it looks like a wonderful day outside or I know I’ll be going somewhere kinda special, I’ll bring along the Lumix DMC-GX7, which usually does a more than adequate job.

Still, there is something special about shooting with the 14 mm. Besides being one of the most beautiful things that I’ve ever owned (a picture of one is here), it can capture some spectacular shots with very little distortion. (And, well, whatever distortion there is, can be dealt with extremely well using the Lens Correction feature of Photoshop Lightroom.)

With that out of the way, here’s a shot I took with it yesterday.


  1. Robert, that is an amazingly clear series of lines and structures. You really have quite an eye for space and shape.


  2. reading what you wrote and looking at the photo, the clarity of the image is really striking. reminds me of why i still schlep my canon around…though it is, as you say, it is bulky, too. this could be “metal, brick and glass” in almost any modern city…very interesting.
