The Buildings of Boswell, Indiana
A couple of weeks ago I was in Boswell, Indiana checking out the town. I love the older buildings that have faded advertisements on on them. At the top of this antique store in Boswell you can see a slightly faded “Dry Goods” written on it. A lot of people would not have stopped to make a picture. Heck a lot of people might not have gone out of their way to visit Boswell, Indiana. I am glad that I did. I love this type of building. I can’t believe it took me this long to visit this town. I may have to go back.
Taking the Canon 17-40mm f/4 Out For a Spin
Part of this trip was to play with a new toy that I bought. I had rented the Canon 17-40mm f/4 from LensRentals.com in the past, but I didn’t like the price of it enough to buy it. I picked up a Tamron 17-35mm lens in the meantime. One day in Indy I came across a like new used copy of the lens at Robert’s Camera that was at a price too good to pass up. I bought the lens, and hoped to run into something nice enough to photograph on the way home. With no clouds in the sky the sunset that night was more suited for a telephoto than a wide angle lens. This small trip to Oxford and Boswell, Indiana was a great chance to play with the lens a bit. I was shooting more for the wide angle effect during the trip. I could have fixed the perspective in Lightroom, but I like the way the distorted look of the building works.
