I went out on at least two occasions this week with the sole intention of using the Sigma 10-20 Ultra-wide angle lens. Just so that I didn’t disappoint myself I made sure I chose one of those for this week’s Deck photo 🙂
This is what remains of the building that housed Frandec Travel Service and Frandec Health Insurance, it was one of Georgetown’s old wooden structures, nothing as fancy as a Victorian Styled Mansion but nevertheless, it gave the area some of it’s character.
It was burnt down this January, suspected arson.

Really sad when we don’t get to these before they burn down. I have to say though. This one had all its visual merit in the 50s and before. They turned it into a square box in later years.
Thanks Nik, I just know it as the box, too young for the 50s 🙂
In my opinion. very nicely composed photo
This sends me down memory lane. Neil Mendonca of Frandec Travel Agency, was my travel agent in the good ole days when I lived in Guyana
I used to stop in once in awhile and say hello to him. He died a few years ago
Thanks Cecil, It was sad when he died! I only knew him through his sons and from seeing him around.
I love that lens. It’s horrible when places of our history are destroyed, even more so when it’s deliberate.
Thanks JP. I heard a lot of people give it bad reviews but I’ve had very good luck with it so far 🙂
I am usually afraid to just go out and photograph old buildings as some people don’t see the merit, but when they’re gone, you kick yourself for not having taken a photograph of it 🙂
I really like how the corner divides the phot, nicely composed Mike. I went with the Tokina 11-16 and have to say, love it!!
Thanks David, I heard lots about that one too 🙂
Phot, now there’s a good one!! 😀
Thanks David, I think so too 🙂
Very, very nice.
Thanks Nigel, 🙂
Pity about the fire but bravo on the capture! What would look very cool is a very dark almost black sky!
I love wide. My next lens will be the 14 -24mm.
Thanks David, I agree. I was thinking after you mentioned that… a long exposure at night…. but in that area, I wouldn’t last a minute with my camera at night 🙂
