Urban Juxtaposition #4



Here is another shot of Dago Butik apartment. This time I take a walk to Cisitu area, facing the building from another direction. I found this nice juxtaposition of a mosque against the apartment. The mosque located at such a right distance from the apartment and from the position I shot I get just the right perspective. I move around one or two step to the side to get the composition right. When I already get my composition, I hear a foot step coming from the mosque. I can't see the person but I can feel there's somebody is running towards me.

I said to myself, "Calm down, concentrate, be ready for a decisive moments". This is the kind of photo taking as taught by Henry Cartier-Bresson. Get the geometry first and wait until some interesting moment unfold. That's how he explains the shot he got in Greece alley.

Few seconds later I see a girl wearing hijab coming out from the mosque. I carefully wait until she enter the frame at the empty space on the lower right ... and ... BANG. I got her! I'm very lucky to have this shot.
