Here is the reason.
|My favorite corner: Thornbrook Road meets Park St. There's something with that fire hydrant that draws me in all the time.|
|The corner of State street and another street in Sycamore, IL, at night.|
|Still Hall in Northern Illinois University, with a very appropriate sign next to the Photographer Huskie.|
|Sunset, as it's seen from Thornbrook Road. Given that this is film, I knew I'd get the orangey tones in the sky (which is where I metered, by the way).|
One small variant in all these shots (in addition to the fact that they all were made in February 2014) is that I used a different focal length—which only means new lens: a Cosina Voigtländer Ultron 28mm f2. Do I like it? I do, but I keep it on a (new) Leica M4-P body because it has the correct framelines for it. In this camera, I had to guess a lot, hence the absence of "excentric" (not aligned in the center) subjects.
