This photographic journey is fun. Images that I know I deleted before are images that I am excited about now. Before, when framing a shot, if someone entered the frame, I would automatically delete it. Now I like the depth and intrigue an unintended intrusion into frame can create. I like it so much that next time I am out I intend to allow these intrusions. This is a photograph I took in Copenhagen. A lot of the shots were taken between 5 – 7 in the evening. The fading light of the day is so nice at this time.

Self-correcting coincidences

And here is an example of this light that lingers late in autumn evenings.

Photography is fun when you experiment. This shot here of the flipped shadows is an experiment. I always liked shots like these but never tried it out. Standing at the intersection on the main shopping street in Copenhagen with the sun shining in your face and looking down to avoid and noticing these long shadows of the pedestrians waiting on the other side is a signal. Get that shot. I have to say that there are some whose shots like these are much better and if you want to see good examples of these here are two of the best: Michael Kistler and Thomas Toft.

Self esteem

Not to be unfair to the iPhone, I got a few shots  shadows with that also. But today I won’t post those; instead here are two people trying to evade their shadows.
