Coffee Break

Posted by Emily (Residing in: Adelaide, Australia | Home:, Singapore) on 12 November 2008 in Cityscape & Urban and Portfolio.

Outside Cibo, corner of Frome Rd and Rundle St.

inspired by andrew gould's syndey street photography. Thanks for the advice of having my camera out and ready and all the insightful comments that he always takes time to write.

Was late for sch. Snapped this without even looking at the LCD. Lomo philosophy deserves lomo post-processing. lol.

If i had more time, perhaps i would have composed it such that the people were framed within the triangle of the bike frame.

Updated every Friday.

Comments appreciated, constructive criticism adored.
What do you like or not like about the photo?

I see riding a bicycle is an international phenomenon. Good lighting!

Lovely click and run shot . . if you had hung around to make that framing, something else would been lost. Love the sheer immediacy of this.

I like the almost causal feel of the shot, I think it's more fun to shot without looking, sometimes you find something that might be missed if you're too focus on framing and such

thanks for your visit to our blog, we appreciate it

Nice lomoesque processing and composition - the backlight works really well in this situation and the subject matter especially really lends itself to the style.

Andrew Gould from Sydney, Australia

The bicycle looks wonderful with the back lighting, and the image itself works so well with those layers of interest receding into the distance. Wonderfully spontaneous and creative work, Emily. That's very nice of you to have thought of me and give me this mention. Let me just say that I find what you do equally inspiring!
