Something that I find happens a lot with street photography is finding something unexpected and interesting to shoot. One Friday after work in May 2016, a really cold night in Adelaide, I took the 35mm F2 Summicron out on the Leica M-P 240. Got nothing. Until I found this protest happening outside parliament house on Norther Terrace. The light, the colours, the vibrance, the people wantering round gave me an opportunity for composing and working with shadows and highlights. Natural and available light is where the 35mm Summicron shines and it is so versatile.
I shot these wide open at F2. Actually with as low an ISO as I could go, and then recovered the shadows in Adobe Lightroom and contrasted boosting the warm tones with a cold white-balance.
