I made this photo more for its visual appeal, rather than for documentation. That’s one of the reasons that it’s in color. The more salient reason is that I like the mix of textures, color, and patterns.
There’s also an enjoyable variety of architectural styles, not to mention the graphic yellow arrow, which adds much-needed foreground interest. I also used Capture One in post to make sure the buildings are correctly squared, minimizing any distortion. This is straight forward photography, but adding an architecturally oriented Art-ish effect might make it more like a graphic art piece. Perhaps, I’ll explore that in a future post.
Careful visitors might have noticed that this is the same alleyway where I made a Couple Within Architecture which I posted a few days ago. A change in angle and treatment has morphed an architectural, urban landscape into street photography, not to mention the all-important human element.
