One of the benefits of business trips is that they give you the opportunity to go shoot photos in unfamiliar places. I just got back from a trip to Denver, Colorado and well, here are a handful of photos I took in the mile high city.
All the photos were shot in the LoDo area (Lower Downtown). The most iconic landmark there is probably the Union Station which hosts a few eateries, including a rather nice tapas restaurant called Ultreia.
This photo was shot handled and surprisingly (for me) came out almost sharp. I don’t have the most steady hands…
I also used this trip to try a new lens I just received, the 23mm f2. I’ve debated for a long time whether to get the f1.4 or the f2 version and finally decided to go for the latter, influenced in part by Janice, the author of the great Travelling Lens blog.
I’m not used to shoot at 23mm, and will probably need some time to adjust. My prime of choice is usually the nifty fifty.
For the last two photos, I took them from the same spot, but 6 months apart. The snowy version works better, but I thought it was fun to put them side by side.
