A simple icepick on a bench in San Diego by Tom Perry balances the frame in this clean shot from Frank Christenson.

“I shot this when I visited San Diego, Ca last year (2013) with a Canon Ae-1 and Canon FD 50mm lens.The aperture was all the way open while the shutter was at about 1/500. Maybe 1000. No lights. Kodak 400 C-41.

I was pumped when I got the negatives back because I had stored the rolled stored away like a time capsule, which means I didn’t process it for few months. But long story short I really like the composition. and I’m into the lines and shapes. Simple trick, and it shows that the subject is going across the picture versus running out of the frame.”
