I continue to create photographs in support of my ongoing Fall season project. This was a quick image I made this past week that features one of the many bolts I found sticking out of the dilapidated concrete where I was photographing. Watch your step!

Normally I start photographing what I refer to as "The Fall Project" (actual title coming soon) on Labor Day weekend. This year, however, the trees wanted me to get an earlier start.

I was getting to know the Zeiss Otus 85 when I photographed my Lubitel 2 camera at f/1.4. The depth of field is definitely "thin" at this aperture as the markings around the focus ring are in focus while the nameplate, not far behind the plane, is showing a fair amount of defocus. It has been several years since I have run a roll of 120 through the Lomo.

This photo was taken around five minutes after what was expected to be the maximum coverage. The arriving passenger aircraft was a bonus to this image.
I don't have the proper filters or lenses to fill the sensor with the sun. What I did have was a cloudy day, a bridge, and a desire to contribute to the countless images of today's event. I'll give it another whirl in 2024.
