Worker, 1937.

Actually, this was captured this week… but something about him made me think of a bygone era.

I also could have called this Worker 11, as it follows my previous 10 Worker images.

In the past, I’ve sort of criticized the 50mm Summilux ASPH as being “too perfect” of a lens, but I love how it has rendered him, and this moment.

    I really enjoy the personality that you captured in this gentlemen and how the rendering of the background — while adding context to the image — makes the image all about the worker. Well done and nice series of images as well.

    Best regards — Bishop

      Thanks Bishop… shooting at wide apertures allows the photographer to direct the viewer’s gaze to the element of interest. If the composition is done well, this should happen automatically, but the shallow depth of field serves to reinforce it.
