Different approaches to a wall

How many ways can we photograph a blank wall? It’s not a very-very blank wall…there is something that we can use to “custom” it: in this case there are two road signs.

Here is the “track”..and, as we are speacking about Street Photographs, we need a human subject.

A “classical” approach: follow a direction:

A countercurrent...a salmon 🙂

A moving countercurrent… if you want an “artistc” picture!

More motion? Very simple:  wait for a fast cyclist ( always as “artistic” picture! )

…uhhhmmmm… there something missig: a car or 2 persons ( there are 2 signals on the wall ) or, better, a person with a blue/white dress (!)… The main key is “Fantasy”! With fantasy we can “paint” (photograph) a simple blank wall in 1000 ways. For this example I used a Sony Rx100M3.

After my drone in the air…return to the earth: under the sky of East Berlin.

In my last posts I paid attention to my drone…I want to “come down” the earth..and to Street-photography: around the city of East-Berlin. I tried to look for the ancient atmospheres, old colors of the city before the Fall of the Berlin Wall. I used my Fujifilm X100…a very good camera for Street Photography. Lightroom for editing.

Pay attention to sentences.

On the left: on the column you can read: “Ale, I love you”. On the right: on the wall you can read: “puppy I love you” 🙂 🙂

I think that’s very important to pay attention to sentences on a wall and to play with them! In the photo of the pigeons I was lucky to find them near the phrase… but, in the second photo, I read “puppy I love you” and I saw a man with his dog: so I asked him to bring the dog near the script!
