Since I don’t do much street photography lately, I decided on a recent travel to take some images of old buildings. Shooting architecture is not an easy task, it requires a good wide angle lens and good technique to avoid distortion. A tilt shift lens would be ideal but its a specialty lens, and since my architecture images are just a part of my travel photography I can live with some distortion (Lightroom makes a very good job reducing some of it).

(same camera, same building, a few hours later)

The 27mm equivalent of the 18-55 zoom at its wide angle was not always enough to capture the whole building. I should have brought with me the Voigtlander 15mm (I rarely use the Sony 16mm pancake lens, too much distortion and low quality). Most of my images were shot after dusk and the NEX did a pretty good job at ISO 3200.

Here are the rest of the images (taken at the city of Florina, Greece).
