I have a thing with symmetry, it appeals to me. And so does contrast. This has both.

Floating Gas Station
Fuji TX2, 45mm, f/5.6, 1/250s, ISO 125
Film: Ilford FP4+
As you sail up and down the Mekong, you cross a lot of motor boats, so it makes perfect sense that their would be gas stations along the way… and yet when you see one you can’t help being surprised! I guess this qualifies as a street shot in a weird sense…
The Jugged Hare

This is one of those times when I wished I’d had the 28mm converter for the x100s. I always argued that I didn’t see enough difference between 35mm and 28mm to justify buying it, but in this case it would clearly have helped. My back was to the wall, I couldn’t frame any better. Still, I kind of liked it, not just because of the brick façade but because the biker is so off center it makes for an unusual composition.

I’ve always had this fascination for the really deep escalators of the London Tube. Every time I go there I try to capture the steep ride, this is my most recent attempt. I remember being even more impressed by the Moscow underground escalators when I went there 15 years ago. I didn’t do much photography back then, sadly. I’ll have to head back there, I guess.
