Great sohrab 2005-01-31 8:14

quite an interesting photograph
it's a faceoff between the 2 cars right???
:)
i like the pole and the board in the middle
this might be in tune with most people's liking because of the huge amount of empty space in between. i dont mind it actually
the colours are quite vivid, especially the blue in the sky.
somehow more than the cars, i like the yellow board and the lightpole. i dont know why??
very different and nice


i think i wouldn't mind seeing this in black and white as well

just one question: why the flash??
take care

Default To sohrab: The Pic

Thanks for checking this out Sohrab. To tell you the truth, this is one of my favourite pics that I've taken in the last week and I'm glad someone else likes it!

This photo is the result of the influence of the colour photography of M. Parr and W. Eggerston. A shot of almost nothing, of everyday life. I used a flash to bring out the sign a bit, and to light up the plant in the foreground, and generally to add a little snapshot tackiness to it. Parr uses this alot in his photos and I really like the borderline cheesiness of it.

Anyways, thanks again man!

As for the BW, I'm sure it would be good that way too, but it would loose alot of the tackiness, which, I believe, is one of the shots strengths!

Oh, and as you say the eyes are dreawn to the sign and pole first. This was my intent. The cars (both incomplete) are just supposed to be accessories.
