It was a quiet morning out exploring the frontier in New York, not my home town. While the summer was hot and nasty, this day was more mild than the average summers day. It was a few days after a meh bit of photo walk so I decided to change things up a bit. I slowed my photography down by pulling out my metabones adapter and attaching my Venus Laowa 15mm f/4 to my Sony A7. Photo wandering, in New York with this lens, has been on my to-do list.
The Venus Laowa 15mm f/4 is not the easiest lens to use. It has an interesting personality and requires a little more care when working with it. You really have to pay attention to how you compose a shot and get your focus right. The focus peaking on the Sony A7 actually works well with the Venus Laowa 15mm f/4, especially on a long photo walk.
I walked from New York Penn Station to the Oculus at World Trade Center where the path station resides. I saw a lot this day, I was happy with the day’s frames. When I looked back at the frames, as one of my last walks for the summer, I long to do it again.
