85mmの画角で得られるもの / What you can capture with an 85mm lens


2月上旬の熱海散歩の記録。前回のブログの続き。

普段の散歩では35mmや50mmを使うことが多いから、たまに85mmで歩くと、被写体に近すぎたり画角が狭すぎたりと、慣れるまでに時間がかかる。

でも、画角が狭い分、切り取り方をいろいろ工夫できるし、余計なものが写らなければ写らないほど、見る側も想像を掻き立てられるのでは…と勝手に考えている。

上の写真は海岸近くの熱海銀座から熱海駅に向かう途中、脇道に入って見つけた行き止まりの風景。寂しいような懐かしいような。鼻たれ小僧が隠れていそうな。

やっぱりいろいろ想像できて楽しい。

These are the photos I took during the photo walk in Atami, Shizuoka in the first half of February. This is the second half of the walk following the last blog post.

I often go for a 35 or 50mm lens for a photo walk, so when I walk with an 85, it takes some time to get accustomed to the difference of the distances and angles.

Still there are some merits. The narrow angle of view offers so many possible compositions with one subject. And no distraction will be included in the frame, so I think it easily lets viewers' imagination run. Of course, these are my personal thoughts.

I captured the photo above on the way from Atami Ginza, a shopping street near the beach, to Atami station. I got off the main street and found this dead end alley. The place looks partly desolate and partly nostalgic. A young school boy would pop out from behind the house.

Hmm. The 85mm angle of view is actually inspiring.

どこに行っても坂道と階段ばかり。
Atami is full of slopes and stairs.
駅前の商店街(の屋根)。最近、また観光客が増えたかな。
The facade of the shopping mall near the station. It looked like there were more tourists.
なんでもない影。でも、そういうの「なんでもないもの」が好き。
It was just the shadow of a railing. I like this kind of nothingness.
壁か崖か、それとも家か。
Is it a wall or a drop-off? Or is a house?
昔の名残り。
The remnant of the old days.
その先にあるものを見たくて、すぐに脇道にそれたくなる。
What would I see on top of the stairs? 
廃ホテル。何が「エコノミー」だったのか知りたい。
A closed hotel. It says economy, but what was economy? I want to know it.

廃ホテルの駐車厳禁。いったい、いつ書かれたものだろう。
The character we don't use any more. When was it written?
落書きが先か、植物が先か。
Is the graffiti first, or the plant first?
遠くの坂道が気になった。
I spotted a slope over there.
近くまで行って確認。ピンクの入り口がかわいい。
So I walked over and see how it looked. The pink house looked a bit out of place.
通り抜けようとした人が、あの標識を落としたのか。
No trespass. But apparently someone did.
おまけの富士山。帰り道の大観山より。下界は摂氏8度で上界は氷点下。強風で寒くて滞在時間たったの10秒。
This one was not taken in Atami. I saw Mt. Fuji on the way home. It was incredibly cold out there and I spent only 10 seconds outside the car.
