Proud to break out of usual habits

For me µ4/3 wasn't only about weight v IQ. Chasing landscapes for about a decade as I learned how to expose and develop, I was getting a bit bored with it. This format let me walk the city streets feeling less conspicuous, with more energy in reserve after a few hours on my feet, and hence more comfortable through feeling invisible and able to drop into the zone where the muse is most engaged.

This shot was a great departure from the norm, and basically jazzed me for noticing it. In the Hayden Planetarium I was working out with the camera, but it was more 'practice' with no significant subject to speak of. Stepping back in a corner to take a break, eventually looking straight up through the support system of the glass walls. . .

Not long after that, I was about Lincoln Center one day, and walked into a Fordham U. park. A fantastic sculpture was there, and with no one about I spent some 20 minutes working the site, but I knew (for background distractions, at least) none were really what I hoped for. I returned about a 1/2 hour later, as it bugged me. While I felt the gate in the b/g was a distraction, I hit upon this compromise composition and cast care about the highlights to the wind. . . as a departure from the norm, I was quite proud for making the extra effort.
