I’m making an assumption that this is a bus stop, but I’m not sure. It was along the main road between Bangalore and Mysore, India. I really like the movie posters plastered inside. It reminds me of the subway stations in New York City.
It has the right amount to decay to make it interesting. Coupled with the scrub and the hazy trees in the distance, it gives the impression of this lone structure just sitting out there in the middle of nothing. In fact, that was the case.
The composition is not as precise as I like it. In the ideal situation, I would have centered the structure and made sure the electric pole wasn’t cutoff. But, traveling at speed and shooting out the car window affords little leeway and no do-overs.
The way I shoot, I probably could have spent fifteen minutes making images from all different angles. I love the contrast between the man-made and nature. Throw in models and this could’ve been a setting for an hour-long session. I see nearly limitless possibilities. But, with my finite time and my tourist destination awaiting, this is all that I could muster.
Note: This is one of one hundred twenty-three photos in my book book of India featuring black and white street photographs and observations.
