Beauty in the decay of a city. Canon 7D, EFS 50mm 1.4 at f9 1/60, ISO 400A Perfect Photographic Morning Part 1
I went out walking around Victoria one December morning as my wife slept in and I had a wonderful photographic adventure. It started as I walked past a parking lot that had, at one end, an old building that was in the the process of being demolished. This idea of finding beauty and art in the midst of decay and destruction was one that has always appealed to me and it became sort of a theme for the morning. I took a few photos and then turned to my left and saw the blue grating and window frame over the tumbled red bricks and I knew I had a pretty good image. I really liked the contrast of colours and textures. After I had imported into Aperture I did increase the saturation of the blue around the window and red in the bricks a little until I had the image that I was looking for. I will tell/show you more about my morning in future posts.
