Description: (4x5 Film) I was initially attracted to the texture in the wall which was emphasized by the strong side lighting coming from the right of the image. The number of steps that go into setting up and composing with a view camera create deliberation and give you plenty of time to engage with the scene. I took time to line up each element in this image and spent about ten minutes getting things “just right”. I love the graphic quality of this image and to me it has a pleasing balance even though the bell ringer and bench seat are off center. If I were to choose my ten favorite images of all time, this would be one of them.
