One White Car ...
I have been spending some time now with just a simple 50mm prime lens.
The only way to zoom is by moving into a new position to frame an image the way I want it. Many times I find I just can't go back any further due to roads or buildings to get a wide view. Often I am thwarted in getting closer to the detail by fences, walls or windows. 50mm means having to work a little bit harder than I am used to.
Limitations aside I have a new found freedom in that simple 50mm prime lens. No wondering about my choice of lens or zoom. No concerns over missing a shot changing lenses and no bag of gear to lug around with me.
So when I looked up to capture this image of the new Adelaide Convention Centre extension, walked backwards over the North Terrace tram lines to frame my shot, all I really thought about was the composition and the one white car driving by.
Adelaide Convention Centre on track for completion in 2015
Drawing inspiration from the landscape of South Australia, the sweeping lines of the new extension are now coming into focus as construction of the Phase 1 building approaches completion, scheduled for 2015. This powerful structure engages in a dialogue with the existing building and with the Phase 2 extension due for completion in 2017, to create a composition of three icons in the heart of Adelaide’s Riverbank precinct.
