We all have them. Locked memories we don’t want to remember but somehow come out when we least expect them to. I recently visited my high school during a craft show and wandered off down one of the hallways I used to walk some 30 years ago. Brought back good times and bad times. Teenage years have many of both kinds of memories. Having the 50mm f/1.8 on my camera, I leaned down a bit and shot this extreme selective focus shot which captured where I want to keep those locked memories…

Nicely done! Focus is perfect!
Highschool in the US must be much more dramatic than in Germany…. or maybe I’m just completely blocking out those memories?
I like the crispness of the one lock/locker and the contrast of the unfocused depth of the hallway. Nice!!
The colors are so out of the ordinary. 🙂
Thanks! If you don’t own a 50mm f/1.8 or better, I highly recommend it for low light and selective focus photography. Being a prime lens, it’s much sharper than zooms, IMO.
As for US high schools years. It had it’s momments I’d like to leave locked up for sure. :->
Great shot!! And you are so right about a fixed lens being more sharp than a zoom.
Great shot, Scott. Your use of that extreme selective focus is superb—and to pair that with an insightful comment about the high school years….Wow! Mitch
Simple and beautiful shot to bring back the locked memories.Nice work on the 50mm fixed lens.
