We’re using a Canon EOS camera which is very different from the one I used in ’78–a Kodak Retina Reflex. The 50 mm lens worked perfectly to reproduce the views from ’37.

The Canon, even at 50 mm, picks up a lot of foreground. We still have parallax, of course, which is more problematic with the plethora of tall buildings in downtown.

Another issue is light and shadow. Very easy to get good shots when you’re photographing across parking lots, thanks to Denver Urban Renewal Authority. Now the buildings block the sun so there’s a lot of contrast between sides of streets. That’s why today’s cloudiness was really great.

Should we depart from the tight rephotography or allow the Canon to do its thing? We’ll get different looking views, but more information about the streets…
