Solve Uncomfortable Feelings

Instantly took a photo of an old woman who had just walked from the other side of the street.

I didn’t want to disturb her during the walk, so I used the fire hydrant standing alone on the pedestrian walkway as the foreground.  In this case, I pretended to point the camera at the hydrant while I set the focus point to the old lady who would arrive at the point I had specified in the frame before I was about to press the shutter.

Sometimes I use this trick when shooting on the street if I feel uncomfortable pointing the camera directly at the subject.  But on the other hand, placing something to fill the frame in the foreground is the best way to complete the story of an image.

Pay Attention to What’s Important

Most importantly, what I notice in this photo is the layering of people from the road below to the bridge over it and other bridges in the distance.

And of course, the facial expression was shown by a passerby who was curious about what I was photographing in a completely unattractive place or of any beauty.

Time Spending for a Reason

Green, Yellow, and Red Contrast are the main colors that make up this photo.  As well as the mural drawn on the wall is another important aspect.

And the reasons above made me spend almost half an hour waiting for a human figure to pass through the scene and be added to the frame in the form of a silhouette.

Dangerous Activity

One should avoid texting while walking.  This activity is very dangerous for us and those around us.

While doing that we pay the most attention to our cell phones so we may lose our awareness of the area around us.

Opposite Movement

The “Do not turn left” sign in this image is designed for vehicles only.

In this image, however, I am using it to relate the opposing movements of a man crossing a pedestrian path in the direction prohibited by the sign.

The Sunday Morning Challenge

The point where dark and light areas meet is formed on the wall in a diagonal line.  And there was something red and round stuck to the black wall.

The two things above I use as basic elements that make up a composition.  But one more element is needed to perfect it.

So, I was there waiting for someone to step into the frame as the third element I wish to perfect the composition.

However, since it was Sunday and early in the morning, it was a challenge to have someone pass by.  And, with a little patience, I finally got this guy onto the scene.
