A lovely mural.
Panny G1, Olympus 9-18mm at 10mm, ISO320.
This lovely mural makes its home in Burlingame in the Bay Area and has been recently restored to its former glory. Unfortunately it’s in the back of a crowded car dealer’s lot so the only way to snap it was with the ultra-wide Olympus zoom on the G1 and then fix perspective in Photoshop. Taken directly into the sun, the original is rather flat but a few seconds work with the Clarity and Vibrance sliders in Lightroom3 and all is well. The Olympus lens shows a total freedom from internal reflection highlights, even in so demanding a case.
A lovely reminder of times past when milk was still delivered to your front door. When I was a kid in London, this was still the case and we would give an apple to the Express Dairy milkman’s horse (!) which was always gratefully accepted. He had two – a sweet brown one and a not so sweet black one, so you were really careful with your fingers in the latter’s case!
