The Machine

I was driving back after dropping off my children for ski training when I notice some old machine parked on the side of the road. I drove on past thinking that might be an interesting subject to photograph. At the next possible place I turned the car right around to investigate. Then parked along side ensuring not to block or make a shadow on the Goliath of iron and cable. It was in two pieces an engine and trailer. The trailer has rusted cable ropes wrapped above it on some kind of foldable crane.

Getting Closer

As I got closer to the beast, the paint and its texture started to intrigue me. I found myself framing and taking image after image. The subject seemed as if it had so much to say. Its toll and historical scars were apparent all over.

Even though I was restricting myself to use the Helios Lens I was truly enjoying the images I was getting.

So much texture and details. The Helios lens is sharp and renders well.

Summary

I do like the look I got from the Helios lens and using some post production with On 1 Photo Raw to achieve the final look of the images. But in the end the subject is what I hope made it as good photography.
