I love me some nice curves…
I shot this with a used Tokina 70-210mm zoom at f3.5. It seems that opening up the lens like that really narrows the focus area. I like shooting with a large aperture because it seems to give the photo depth that a smaller aperture flattens. I’ve got a 50mm f1.7 that I love (thanks, Wallace) and a 28mm f2.8 that also more than serves its purpose. I don’t shoot a lot of zoom photos, but this landscape seemed to warrant it.
There’s something sexy about curves, even if they exist on a lowly section of railway. The way it sweeps away from me as I shoot the photo, the way it asks me to come along with it wherever it may lead. Mmm…curves.
