95 William

OK, so the subject-based theme that I have decided to explore is "Brisbane Doors". Below is my first posting of an unknown number in the series. 95 William St is now the home of the National Trust in Brisbane and the building has been sympathetically rejuvinated and the enterance is particularly striking. This shot, like my two previous postings, was taken last week early on the rainy morning using the same film and camera body (with the Tamron 135mm). This was the second last shot on the roll and taken after the batteries went flat, luckily the OM2sp has a mechanical mode that allows shots be taken at 1/60th. I guessed the exposure and adjusted the aperture accordingly - you can't do that with a digital!

I think you have rather nicely combined both of your newly adopted themes in this image. It is indeed a door, an imposing solid and rather grand one too, but nicely outlined (oops)... by lines. The asymmetric subject composition also rounds off your well presented image. Thanks for sharing, I am looking forward eagerly to seeing some more doors and hope it won't be too long before you post again.
