Waterbury, Connecticut

I remain a dyed-in-the-wool eye level viewfinder user, but having other options can prove useful. This truck is in a large fenced-in field, part of which is used by the city police to store impounded vehicles. I've done some shots using the chain link fence as part of the picture, but that didn't work in this case. Using the LCD of my Lumix GX7 tilted down 45° let me hold the camera above the the links and between the strands of barbed wire at the top of the fence. Even viewing against a bright sunny summer sky I was able to get a really decent idea of framing the picture, with the camera held eight feet above the ground.
