Rue Burdeau, Lyon (OSM)
Markus, I like this shot very much. The young girl heading down into the darkness provides an emotional statement/appeal in addition to the excellent composition choices you presented in this image. I can’t decide if the other people in the shadows add or subtract from the overall image. Nicely done!
Thanks, Earl! Yes, this image has an immediate appeal, and I have pressed the shutter more than once. The difficult task in such street scenes is to get the moment right and have the things align themselves. Re. the two guys in the shadow, I was lucky enough that they were wearing dark clothes and stayed in the shadow, so they become kind of second level elements and at least do not detract too much.
Das ist ganz einfach wunderbar. Dieses Gefühl des Eintauchens beim Betrachten ist fast nicht in Worte zu fassen. Also helfe ich mir mit Albert Camus: “Don’t walk in front of me, I may not follow. Don’t walk behind me, I may not lead. Just walk beside me and be my friend.”
Viele Grüße & weiterhin sichere Straßen, Fritsch.
Florian, das ist eins meiner Lieblingsbilder aus Lyon (neben “Camouflage”). Das Camus-Zitat kannte ich nicht, es passt in der Tat hervorragend!
