Historically, I have been more inclined toward travel involving a large bag filled with lenses, including… or especially… the wide angle. Grand landscapes, vast vistas. That vision has suited my eye and, as a result, filled my library.
But I’ve been experimenting – in an all-in sort of way – with a much more constrained vision these days. One camera with a fixed semi-wide lens. Black and white only. That’s it.
This has necessitated a very different form of vision. Practical realities have pushed me, by design, toward smaller scenes. As a result, I have been focusing on the little things, the details.
My resolve was tested recently as I went on a road trip – my first since covid struck – and needed to pass by each and every grand and vast I encountered. Here’s what I saw… instead.
