There was a lot to photograph in this small section.
I found it rather relaxing watching these birds moving from section to section.
Have a great Thursday!
Thank you ! :)
Many photographers don’t find it enough interesting to photograph in small sections, they often say that they can’t see anything interesting… Well, I’ve always said that if you really see – you see something to photograph (even in very small sections). That is what photography is all about. You don’t have to travel far… because the motifs are everywhere!
Fantastic images in this post, Mike. I like them all!
Much appreciated, Malin! Sometimes, it is very difficult for me to get inspired in this city. These days, however, I’m trying to push myself to find small sections and just wait and study them. In this case, I was able to find this area which was pretty decent :) Sometimes, it’s just a matter of getting out there and searching!
Nice series , I like that you said it was relaxing to watch the birds fly from section to section , sometimes it’s nice to stop and look at something for a while like that .
Thank you Gavin! I know most people dislike pigeons, and I’m sure property owners don’t like their droppings, but they are a very interesting bird to watch, and they’re a rather social creature.
beautiful pic… Urban atmosphere is incredible..
Thank you! Although this city can be rather dull, it does have its moments! :)
lovely set here. nice work!
Thank you! :)
I love! The birds give a haunting air to the steel steps. Like ethereal urban mystery.
Peace my friend :) ~ Allison
Thank you so much, Allison! :) I really like fire escapes, I find them to be a perfect urban element and the shadows they create are interesting. The birds add the much needed detail :) Have a beautiful weekend!
I love fire escapes as well! Maybe it’s the writer in me imagining the story of someone making a quick escape . . . mysterious. And imagining the clanging sound they make when someone runs down. It’s cool that the birds play around on them, laughing as they have wings to make their escape whenever they please!
Have a great one!
Peace – Allison
I love these pictures Mike! Thats what I love about taking picture of our own city, if we look closely, there’s always something new or things we only just realized were there all along
Thank you Dalia! One again, your shadow work had inspired me to take these. It can be a great challenge to pick a spot, and investigate it fully and see what can emerge from that!
Cool shots. Love these old buildings.
Thank you Rob! Winnipeg has a few great areas for early 20th century architecture. It’s good for photography :)
Gosh, you saw these and were fast enough to grab it! I expect I would have missed it. Well done.
Thank you! I’m getting better at the manual focus and at times feel it is much faster than with my autofocus cameras!
There might be times when I chose manual focus, distant shots at dusk, picking a subject out of the rolling fog or thru mesh or screen, but usually AF is almost instantaneous. Of course, there are some lenses that focus slow.
There’s just something about that last shot I like. The colors seem so natural, nothing over processed. Beautiful!
