Monday was a Fuji digital camera day and it was a bright, sunny, end-of-winter day. I wasn’t sure how busy I would be at lunch and if I’d be able to get away for a photowalk. There was an opportunity to shoot an uncommon subject this morning. The windows on the tower were cleaned this morning resulting in this shot.
I was able to walk around at lunch. I tried “shooting from the hip about two-thirds of the time and the photos were either mis-aimed or out of focus. It’s a technique I will not be using too often in the future. Fortunately I did take some photos by actually looking through the viewfinder.
This cafe caught my eye because of all of the photographs on the wall. I initially thought it was a gallery or a retail store because there were framed pictures on shelves that ran up the wall. It turned out to be a Starbucks. The man on the left jumped out of the way after I took the first shot, but the second shot wasn’t as interesting with him out of it so I used the first one instead.
Sometimes form is more important than colour in a picture; in other pictures, colour is very much part of the subject or is the subject. In these next two pictures, the colour plays a large role.
