This image, shot in 1962, is a firm favorite. I plan to print it in the largest possible size. Its proof that the subject can be conveyed just as well, and sometimes better when out of focus, and that composition doesn’t require sharpness.
Although I liked the washed blue of the original, I do find that the motel on the left stands out better in more realistic colors, with deeper tones.
