Urban Shadow (Two photographs)

Shadows can be dark black and prominent or grey and muted, either way they make a great addition to street photography and urban landscape photography. Taken in Montreal around the Main.

I am sure my collection of photographs of benches will never be a best seller, but I enjoy taking them and processing them. In this case I took a few liberties in the black and white treatment in choice of colour filters and contrast.

The creator of this innovative piece gave it a common name of Noah. To me it looks like an Inuksuk, used by the Inuit to provide directions. In the far north you see them, often large and small and the symbol is on the flag of Nunavut. Here in an urban environment, using urban materials it made quite the impression. I’m a big fan of the alleyways of Montreal and their art work. My first post on WordPress was on that subject. In this case I took three photos of the installation before settling on the black and white you see here. I have included the colour shots just for interest sake.


Black and White City (Two Photographs)

Black and white photography has as many styles and options as colour photography. Here I have done a photograph with a bit of dutch tilt (not something I am prone to using but it works here). The second photograph is a reminder of those old photographs of the forties with a lot of contrast. I must say the totem pole hidden behind tree and more visible by its shadow struck me as unusual. The photo was edited to remove signage.


Straight No.2 (Two Photographs).

In Monday’s post I complained about the lack of straight lines. I have decided to give up and go with what I saw. These are the back windows of a hotel in broad daylight.  The results of the light, shadows and clouds is abstract and compelling. I am not sure that this works quite as well in colour.


Demonic Tea Party (Two Photographs)

I came across this scene in a local garden thinking that it was kind of cute. Then I realized that all the crockery was just tossed about. At that point I had no idea what I was looking at. This is what I like about street photography, it makes you look and find interesting things, angles and ideas.


Office Abstract (Two Photographs)

I saw this window and the reflections in the marble and wanted to do something with the scene. It was only as I was leaving did I realize it was the anti-room to an office (how intimidating that must be for visitors). With film there was always grain, these days we remove noise and add grain if we wish. I think noisy photos, mimicking grain, are sometimes just fine.
