The Art gallery of NSW had an exhibition of Atget's photographs recently. One thing that stood out was the number of images that had strong vignetting on the top two corners. So similar but different.

It's certainly reminiscent of his subject matter. But Atget would have framed the shot so that the graceful form of the molding at the top wasn't cropped off.

That was the widest camera in my bag -- nearly a 21mm on a 120 >> I was at the wall > sometimes you just can't include everything  >> so you get the max the surroundings allow ..

A really fine abstraction, as in well cropped with the human eye.
