Indeed, true Weese Weeds!
Well, as soon as I started seeing them, I can’t un-notice them any more. And here they are in nice company with the tree reflection and the red stripes.
Markus, just curious, on a shot like this do you quickly react taking the image from a gut reaction or do you see the opportunity and wait for the right moment — someone walking by?
In a conversation with Carl Weese some years ago, he told me that he often sees a composition lacking a component and waits for it – this is what I do sometimes now, too.
This image I do have in two versions, without and with the pedestrian: I now resort to take an image at first vision – sometimes this is the only frame I will get – and if the scenery changes, I can decide if I want to follow up, which I did here.
The image without the walking person is different, slightly less interesting I think. Would he have been clothed differently, his inclusion would not have worked.
Weese weeds indeed! You have such healthy, lush weeds on your sidewalks. The red shirt is a bonus.
What lovely weeds you have. So lush and healthy. To me the red shirt makes the picture. Reminds me a little of those orange boots in another picture.
The warm afternoon light certainly brought out the best of the weeds green tones. And the shirt adds the amplifying color contrast. I count myself lucky for that image – not always do I see so clearly.
