Lines, holes and moving subjects

Composition and timing are good friends. When you find a good spot it is useful to camp there and wait for something to come into the frame. The following photo was made in a backyard of a group of small skyscrapers. Each building was painted in a different color and the backyard was mostly grey with some trees in the middle. I stopped by an interesting scene full of diagonals, shapes and an open frame that called for a moving subject walking into it.

The walking subject adds more life to the photo. The lines are leading the viewers eyes into the hole in the upper middle where the movement is taking place. The different shades of grey and the green and blue tones in the fore- and background creating an artificial and futuristic look. Perfect for an urban street photo.

I will print this one and hang it on a wall at home.
