Touch Someone

Posted on Sun 15th Oct, 2006, 12:16am

ISO: 400, Shutter speed: 1/50, Aperture: f/2,
Camera: Canon EOS 20D, Flash: None, Cropping: 16:9,
Lens: Canon EF 35mm f/1.4L, Focal length: 35mm,
Captured: 24th September 2006, 5:16pm,

I'm guessing this will fall into the "either you love it or you hate it" category. Some people will say it's just a shot of a telephone directory and that's fine. It's the same as me thinking a landscape is "just a field and some sky" or whatever.

Personally, I'm not sure why I like this. It makes me wonder who's been called using it and what the caller wanted. Though I must admit that thought came after I took the photo so I couldn't say it was a driving force behind my decision to stop and shoot.

My only regret is that there isn't more focus on the ends of the pages, but there was very little light as you can tell from the Exif data.

It's an interesting image. I'm wondering if the space had above it was empty it would have been even more interesting if you had used it. Just a thought.

I like it as I often have a "London fiver" given to me in change - some tatty old note that's done the rounds for the past few years that's barely holding itself together - and this reminds me of one of those. Certainly well used and might also be a social comment on the way we use communications nowadays. Or maybe I like it as, at first from the thumbnail, I thought it was a sarnie.

I like it, I don't know why but I do... Nice post processing on this as well, very understated.

I like it, but then I like old tatty things :) The DOF and processing are very good.

Yeah, this type of shot appeals to me also. Taking an mundane everyday object and giving it some life.

Great colours and DOF.
