No Parking

Nikon D70 @ 20mm, 1/60 sec, f/5.6, ISO 200

Previous · Current · Next

Finally managed to find a few moments to myself. Recently, I've been feeling that updating this blog has been a bit of a chore, but now that things are back on track it's good to be back! :)

So I was back home to see the parentals this weekend and stopped by Glasgow on the Saturday. It was just a quick wander around the shops, but I couldn't help but stop and photograph this scene which was up a little alley. I've been finding myself enjoying this kind of photography more and more recently, but appreciate that it's not the most popular genre.

Your comments on this one are very much appreciated.

Allow me to qualify the "wow" comment. Haven't looked at your site in a few days and this is distinctly different than most of your urban images. This feels rich and textural....chunky and rough...almost like an illustration. The visual quality is similiar to your landscapes. This is quite pleasing.

Looking forward to seeing more.

Very gritty and textury. I think I am making up words.

Something from nothing ... that's one heck of an image related to inner cities.

The exposure info suggests 5.6mm - how did you get that? Or is it an anomaly?

Great shot, John. The tones are beautiful. Sharpness is excellent and the subject is very interesting. Great work on this one.

I really love the way you are able to paint with colours. They are so alive that I keep wondering how you get them that way. Love the texture and the softly fading light. Gives you a real feeling that you are in an alley allright.
Really enjoy your work, you keep surprising me everytime.

Great shot John, it's true, there are a lot of photos held within the streets, and alleys of Glasgow.

Is it nice to be back? :o)

Your post makes me want to go out hunting for dingy alleys...

Thanks for the comments guys. This is a current favourite of mine, so I'm glad it went down well. Not the pretiest of pictures, but it does have a nice feel to it.

Oh, and the original focal length was a typo... not managed to get me a 5.6mm lens yet :)

Alan: It was strangely nice to be back actually! :) I don't think it's quite as photogenic as Edinburgh, but there are still a lot of great shots to be found.

dgaf: I mainly used curves adjustments to darken areas, and a colour balance adjustment to get the colours. I also applied USM to add some local contrast (something like 40, 60, 0).
