Twilight Architecture

I’ve been taking advantage of the early sunsets in the city for my afternoon photo walks. Normally I go out around 3:30 but I’ve pushing it out an hour so that I’m walking at the start of twilight. There’s still just enough ambient light to keep my exposures from getting too dark while still having that warm soft glow feeing that you only get during twilight. This doesn’t last very long, maybe only 15 minutes so I have to work quickly.

It’s a real challenge taking abstract architecture with a 35mm but when I can fill the frame, I’m really rewarded with an interesting image. This lens is so small and light that I don’t want to shoot with anything else right now. The novelty may wear off in a few weeks but in the meantime I’m just enjoying not having haul around a lot of weight to get a quality image.
