Elevators are extremely difficult to photograph. I think I need to get a special lens.
Unfortunately, I didn’t keep any notes when taking the pictures.
So while I have some vague memories of where these are, I’m not 100% certain
100% of the time, and as a consequence prefer to leave them all unidentified
Instead of identifying some of them, and not identifying others.
After these, which are just a tiny, tiny selection of elevators in Montreal
I might have to start taking pictures of escalators that are not in the metro.
There are probably fewer escalators than elevators by a factor of at least 10, if not 100.
Which would mean, theoretically, that I might be able to get snapshots of all the escalators in town.
That all being said, I could also try to find a very wide angle lens
And use some website like this
Combined with a spreadsheet
To actually enable me to photograph all the elevators in town in an organized fashion.
But somehow, I don’t think that beyond the concept of paying attention to things that we normally don’t pay attention to
That there would be any real demand, desire or interest in compiling a pictorial database of the Elevators in Montreal.
That all being said, are there any quote, cool or interesting, unquote elevators that you think are particularly noteworthy?
And are there any express elevators in town?
And if I were to do this seriously I probably should also snap pictures of the panel
And the plate to identify the manufacturer.
it sounds like an awful lot of work.
Let’s see if I get the wide angle lens first.
And then we’ll see what happens.Published: May 29th, 2012 Author: zeke Categories: Montréal, Photo Essay | Comments Off
