Street Photo of the Day, Sept. 4, 2012: US Open Special

U.S. Open, Roof of Arthur Ashe Stadium, 2011. © Mason Resnick. Gear: Olympus E-PM1 Pen Mini, 12mm Olympus Zuiko f/2 lens.


  1. OK, so the story behind this shot: Olympus was a sponsor of the US Open last year, and used the occasion to promote a new camera, the E-PM1 (Olympus Pen Mini). They took small groups of photography writers into areas of the complex the general public doesn't have access to: the stringing room (where racquets are strung, duh), the photographer's courtside box, and the roof of the stadium. And of course, they supplied us with cameras for catching the action, but I also snuck in some street photography.

    In this shot, we're on the roof: Writers, Olympus PR folks, and nervous stadium security people.


  2. I actually enjoyed reading through this posting.Many thanks.
