*The Best Commute*
As I was walking the Brooklyn Bridge that morning taking photos in the glorious dawn light, I was overtaken by this guy, clearly on his way to work. And I thought, « isn’t that just the best route ever to go to work ? »
*Under the Bridge*
I didn’t have much time to walk around Berlin, but I did head out in the limited time I had towards Orianenstrasse. On the way I saw this expressway bridge and loved the metal framework. I didn’t have tripod so I positioned my camera on my backpack for this 20 exposure (or thereabours). It’s not perfect, I wish the car lights were more apparent, but it’s interesting and grimy.
I didn’t get to see much of Berlin, and certainly didn’t get to see the « pretty » parts. But the Messe, where the conference I was attending was, was interesting in an austere kind of way. I think the masts and their shadows make the picture as much as the building, but that building has the austere 70s look that many people probably associate (wrongly, I’m sure) with Germany.
Diagonal of Light
Early morning light is the best. And sometimes, as you walk past a place that the evening before looked as nondescript as could be, you stumble upon a shot. I love this one. Not only the diagonal of light, but the shadow of the walking subject and the London Brick backdrop…
As I was walking towards a meeting in Pall Mall I walked passed St Martin in the Fields, and never having gone inside, decided to give it a try. It may look sober compared to the churches and cathedrals I’m used to in Paris, but there’s something soothing in that, even to an atheist like me. Anyway, I decided it was worth a shot. Only later did I notice the man silently praying on the right hand side of the shot.
