Two adjacent storefronts in Dawson City, in Canada’s Klondike gold rush region, caught my eye a few minutes after I arrived there last year.
I was probably 65-70 metres away, because I was walking along the banks of the historic river. But I had two cameras around my neck, one with my 18-125mm lens and the other with my 70-300mm lens, so I was able to compose a really tight frame from where I stood.
It might look as if these are two separate images “stitched” together electronically – but it’s one image, simply depicting two different styles, cheek by jowl.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K200D with a Sigma 70-300mm lens. F8, 1/350 sec, ISO 400, focal length 300mm.
