City architecture photoshoots is not really my thing as I don’t have the right equipment, although occasionally I have been lucky. I’m not into leaning buildings…bah! And as for doing zooms with the phone usually is not a good result. Thankfully, some phone apps have the Straighten tool, and I make good use of it. Here’s a recent zoom shot taken on the Lumia950 whilst waiting for my tram. CGU is an insurance company and Deloitte, well, you know what they do!

The phone captured the original as an .evminus.dng file of 25.6Mb. Why? I dunno. What is that? Processed in Fhotoroom.

On my way recently for my eye exam, I was in Carlton, a suburb full of Victorian architecture, and cute row housing (small cottages that are virtually identical except for individual touches). Both visits the days were mild and sunny and I enjoyed my slow stroll, noticing the small details one does when you have the time. Like the sketch below.
