Persistent Smokers & Hangers-on

Persistent Smokers & Hangers-on

Snow and wind whipping all around and like fellow travelers around the campfire, the smokers huddle under the heatlamps outside Calhoun Square. Like pack animals on the fringes, the postal boxes and newspaper machines keep close.

Backstory on this series: On February 26th, Minneapolis had seven inches of snow drop in a couple of hours. I ventured out in the evening with one lens: a 50mm f1/1.4 — ISO 320, wide open at f1/1.4 between 1/20 & 1/80 sec. With all the variables removed, I was free to explore all the compositional opportunities of shooting hand-held in the dark during a snowstorm.
