Urban Juxtaposition #1



This is the tail end of Pasupati flyover. I came to this place one day before, looking for photos to submit to Bina Marga photo contest. I don't find any good enough shots from that evening walk. I came back to the same spot on the very next day (Sunday) after shooting around Dago Car Free Day, and I found this very interesting juxtaposition between the crowded side of Pasupati and the relatively peaceful side of artery street.

I like this scenery. Those people with their leg on the median, the similar color of motorcycles (it's a coincidence) and the green leaves on the opposite.

Technically it is not a difficult shot, just wait for the right moment and you get it. I have to cross the street and stand right on the median, but it's not a big deal either. Another proof of the benefit using a prime lens, it forces you move until you get the right angle. (This is the first photo walk using the just-newly-acquired 35mm f/2D)
