Urban Study #73
Still in Monrovia, California, this is the northwest corner of Foothill and Myrtle, just across Myrtle from the First Presbyterian Church. I really enjoy capturing urban scenes that are reminiscent of life during the first half of the twentieth century, I think they remind me of my own childhood and the innocence of childhood. This scene is much more interesting produces a feeling of warmth that is not present in contemporary commercial structures in my opinion. The white lines breaking up the brickwork and the repetition of the green awnings give me a good feeling in this scene.
The D7000 and the 18-200mm Nikkor lens did a very nice job in capturing a high resolution image in these brackets. You can actually make out some of the broadcast towers on top of Mt. Wilson in the background, which are approximately 12 miles distant.
