Though all of my recent image posts have been “straight on” shots, the majority of what I’ve been shooting while walking around town with my new M has been anything but. Here’s a shot of the Petaluma High School parking lot. No cars, just lines and shapes.
Lens: Canon EF-M 22mm f/2 STM. 1/250 second at f/5.6, ISO 400.

By the edge of the Petaluma river at the “D” Street bridge, the old pilings show the scars of time and tide.
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L at 55mm. 1/30 at f/8, ISO 100.

During a recent performance/party thrown by friends I got momentarily distracted by an abstraction.
Lens: Canon EF 85mm f/1.8. 1/15 at f/2.0, ISO 2500.
Canon 5DM3 drawn to abstraction.
Here’s an abstract image of one of the grain factories in town. I cropped the original shot to a 4:3 aspect ratio and desaturated the color about 70%. Why not?
Lens: Canon EF 24-105mm f/4L at 100mm. 1/250 at f/8.0, ISO 100.

Here’s a night shot I took several months back with my T2i mounted with a Canon 270ex flash. I like the 270ex because it’s small, lightweight and very basic. It’s also unobtrusive in public situations and obviously much more flexible than the camera’s pop-up flash.
Lens: Canon EF-S 15-85mm.
