Fantastic! I have a similar project on how to “create” movement on canvas by bluring the boundaries between form/object and environment and using multiple sources of light to suggest movement. Your photo is a excellent example of exactly that. Permission to try to transcribe it on canvas if you allow. And a minor comment, If i may, how do you think those red and white poles/lines work on the picture? It looks like they create a very symmetric code that “freezes” the environment. Cheers.
Wow. Thank you! I would be thrilled if you tried to transcribe this to canvas, that sounds like a fascinating project and I would love to see the results! This was the photographic equivalent of “shooting from the hip”. I saw the colours and shapes, I lifted my phone and shot at the same time. I liked the result and glad you do also. The red and green poles were what caught my eye at first I think and although it was not a deliberate device, I agree with your comment. And thank you again!
wow did you make that blurry on purpose? You see I would only get that by mistake, I would have no idea how to do shutter and whatever speed, totally baffles me I need someone here in person to show me my camera. Having said that my phone is taking better shots at the mo hehe. Fantastic movement shot!
Thank you! The shot was one of those unplanned moments, I was walking toward the turnstiles and there was somethng about the lights, the people and so I lifted my phone and shot as my hand was moving….I wasn’t sure aout posting the shot but I liked it so I thought I would try it out…
aaah i get the shaky hand naturally lolol….its odd how blurry photos can look good x
And I very nearly deleted this pic when I first saw it in my phone… x
hah near miss then!
The lines in this photo reminded me of something I couldn’t quite put my finger on. After reading the comments and going back to look at it again, it occurred to me … this reminds me of strips of DNA code with coloured bars. It was Geo’s comment about how the coloured bars create a very symmetric code. Love this!
Wow, thank you, I had no idea when I decided not to delete this photo that it would turn out to have so much hidden away inside it, just goes to show there is so much all around us that we don’t see, must confess that since getting more and more hooked on photography that I see things differently…
that makes two of us! I’m learning to see things from a completely different perspective 🙂
Which is always a good thing 🙂
Very nice capture.
You are welcome.
