Intimate Urban Landscapes

Long ago I was told to pay attention to details. In the details I would find compositions and that in my frame I had control of the elements. To make the case we walked through the streets taking pictures of details. It remains one of my favorite types of photography, especially in a new city.
Here you see some art on a building in Montreal dating back to the sixties if not earlier. The picture was taken some years ago. I know many people who walked or drove by and never noticed it, or if they did it was a road marker in their mental map.
We have a tendency to take what we see around us for granted and the longer we remain in one place and the more familiar it is and the more unobservant we get. Honing our senses to overcome that means when we do venture somewhere new we see so much more.
Something worth thinking about when you take your camera out and get frustrated when you do not see anything worth photographing.
