I’ve been in the tropics for the past couple of months and missed most of the change in the seasons. Home now and did some strolling this past week. I was fortunate to catch these scenes. Thank goodness for stragglers and dilly-dallyers 😉

Colors and Lines, Beijing Hilton Style

A couple of images from the archives – I have liked them since I made them but just have not had the chance to properly process the files. I shot these at the Hilton Beijing (the Third Ring Road location, near Sanlitun) last year. It was my last morning there. Had an hour to kill so I wandered around the common areas and found some nice themes and lines.

Photog Notes
These images are pretty much straight out of the camera. The one care that I took in making these shots was to line up the horizontals and verticals so that I could use as much of each frame as possible (i.e., with minimal cropping). Even with doing so, one tweak that I had to make in processing was to compensate for the converging lines due to lens barrel distortion. A modest cost of modern zoom lens technology.
