Perspective, by Mark James

Mark James, Saipan, doors

Mark James, long time friend of 2 Guys, sent us this interesting shot for our April theme, Entrances and Exits.  Mark writes…

Entrances and Exits. As soon as I read the words this shot came to mind. There is a bunker at the Saipan airport that was used by the Japanese in WWII to store their bombs that they put on the planes. It was heavily fortified with two sets of 10cm thick steal doors that  sealed a 3 meter thick concrete bunker. It’s a cool building and I liked this shot best even though it’s unconventional.

Thanks Mark.  I agree it’s interesting not only from a historical perspective, but I appreciate how you got down low to the ground to make this shot.  It makes it even more impressive.  Great use of a narrow DOF too. Mark took this with his Panasonic DMC-GH2, f/2.2, 1/100s.

    Really like the focus on the texture in the foreground and the blurring out of the complementary vertical lines in the background… really well thought out.

    Unconventional makes for great photography sometimes. Nice capture of the feeling
