Urban Shape #14



This was taken at the same spot as Urban Shape #13. Vertical frame makes the fence line looks stronger and increase the image's overall depth. This spot is very interesting to explore geometrical composition. I have several shot from other angle. All of them have the potential to be a great picture.

I spent several minutes waiting for something unique and decisive to complete the scene. Shot using film, I have to economize the frame. Machine gun approach doesn't apply here. I have to be sure and conscious about every frame I took.

Then come this motorcycle rider from the left, I see him from the corner of my eye before he enter the scene. Click the shutter when his position align with the pedestrian. That evening was already late, the light was starting to dim. My shutter speed was around 1/60 or 1/30. I knew the motorcycle will be blurry and the result is just as expected.
