That's a really cool image Alec...I love the way the sunlight is reflecting off the netting and is candescent in the window...also interesting shadows as well (crouching-like figure in the centre)
I think the really nice aspect of this image, is that the scaffolding safety netting is actually (unwittingly) acting like some kind of giant urban, grungy, photographic texture overlay!...Something to look for when photographing city centres in the future..Certainly a new angle and something I hadn't thought of before.
In a building I was in the other day something bright flashed for a second through a window. Thought I should snap it because it made me jump. Still don’t know what it was through that layer of haze.
Canal Street, Nottingham 1995
Marple Street, St Anne's district of Notts., still a tough place to live today.
Old terraced houses 1969/70, shortly before demolition.
I think of Mrs. Marple. I’ve forgotten who she was. Who was she, a spy?
From that angle the houses look organic but machine-like, like a centipede or something else either insectoid or reptoid, maybe Giger-like.
Yes, we used to avoid St Ann's when we were kids. Cranes still up at the Victoria Centre in the background. Wiki says it opened in 1972. I remember the train station that it replaced.
NYC, December 1947
Would make a nice LP cover 👌🏼
igreja de santo antonio, canudos, flávio de barros
More from the Great Blizzard in NYC, Dec. 1947
Nice contrasts going on
Robert Frank, Rodeo, New York City 1956
There’s a “Kimba The White Lion” quality to this photograph in that, like with KTWL, I want to join this animal in an adventure.
Kimba opening ....
@Alec Well I'm not familiar with KTWL, but great theme tune and looks like it's a 'proper' kids/adults animation..I love stuff like that..animation in general...enjoyed some Studio Ghibli stuff recently.
Getting back to the photo, I really like this image, very cleverly composed..from a dogs-eye perspective and the actual body of the dog acting as a leading line to the Taj Mahal, which anyone would expect to be the main subject and focal point of the photo..but the dog definitely steals the show, just as the photographer intended..You just know that dog's thinking "Wow!!...look at that!!!.....and I agree alec, it would be nice to 'jump in' to this scene, say to the dog 'come on boy, let's go and take a closer look, together' and follow the dogs lead...now that really would be cool...wonder if the photographer tried anything like that with this dog??
..again Dec 1947, NYC
To accompany your DS photo alec (not seen that shot before😎), here's a rather nice DS polaroid, titled 'kitchen- light'..
I look at it and I hear it
