single shot monday: canal street.

21 May 2012

Canal Street is wide enough, and the buildings relatively short enough, so that the spring and summer early evening light that comes down has a sort of wide, sweeping feeling.  Sunsets have inched over into 8 o’clock territory (huzzah!), which means that there’s more time after work, as I head down to the local, to enjoy the long shadows cast by the slowly fading sun.

(I meant to step out a bit further into traffic after I took this shot, so that I could get a bit more of the light, but alas!, this was the last shot of the roll and I hadn’t packed any more film in my bag.   A bit of a shame — I knew I’d underexposed this shot slightly, and wanted to readjust the exposure — but ah well.  Such is film photography.)
