Broadway walk with the Voigtländer Heliar 50mm/1:3.5 and Leica M10

This is the sixth of a series of articles showcasing pictures taken on the Voigtländer Heliar 50mm/1:3.5. These pictures were taken at Broadway in two locations: the Blackfriars campus of the University of Technology Sydney (UTS) and the TAFE NSW Ultimo Campus.

The first set of photos were taken at University of Technology Sydney (UTS) Building 25 at the Blackfriars precinct. There is a distorted mirror located on the grounds here.

The next set of photos were taken at The Muse building at the TAFE NSW Ultimo campus, also known as the Sydney Institute.

This is a good opportunity is how how well the lens captures architecture photos, as well as detail and bokeh from closeups of the fence.
