Black and White

This was just an image grabbed on my smartphone. I was running back home after being caught in a heavy downpour, but then, I saw this photo opportunity as I rounded a corner and snapped it. The old gentlemen catching shelter under an old store eve.

Push Pin Boutique on Compton St Adelaide

A vintage style store that sells vintage fashion in Adelaide.

I think that good urban photography should have a timeless style to it. So you cannot really tell when the photo was taken. That is what I really like about this part of Adelaide for street photography.

Capturing candid, unmediated chance encounters: That is what street photography is about. I think that is what is captured here. That, and an unusual perspective.

Sometimes to make a photo seem more interesting, it is worth trying to find an unusual perspective, to make the scale of different aspects seem different, unrealistic.
