Loback Meat Company

Dawn’s cool shot from the Pike Place Market last week inspired me. I shot the same historic sign that she did and then processed it using the same techniques I used on the shot from yesterday. She and I have to go shooting together one of these days.

  1. Very cool – you took the shot from the other side of the sign. You got a deal – we will pick a time and go shooting around the city.

  2. I, too, am every excited by this pairing. The wide-eyed new guy, and the jaded, grizzled veteran of the place. Well, that was an unfortunate way of putting things. How about … the critical, cynical, crusty observer of human nature, and the gentle yet grand, gracious observer of the nature of things.

    Well, everything’s somewhere in the middle there, probably. Nevertheless, the results should be quite interesting.

  3. And what kind of lens are you using here? It looks quite extreme, and it does a perfect job of conveying the tight, almost crushing nature of that environment even though it’s not people-heavy at the time.

    • Yeah, the lens correction thing. I’m not sure I universally like what we can do with digital images. We can take your shot here and make all the lines collapsing toward the center absolutely vertical. And there are people who would insist that you do that. I’m grizzled enough myself to pretty much demand that we viewers have a learned vocabulary with which we make sense of images, and this kind of distortion tells us something about the place. To remove that in order to make the image a proper representation rips that unique quality from the image.

  5. By the way, I freakin’ love that lens indoors. When I got it, I imagined I was getting it for the big outdoors, panorama, etc. Not even a little bit. I very rarely use it outside anymore, but it’s awesome for interiors.
