This one was a little tougher.. especially since I am not really drawn to shoot the “iconic landmarks”. I still shoot them to prove I was there but that’s not where my artistic flare has presented itself..
There is something very clean about this photo to me.. Maybe it was the fact that I didn’t need to clone out any trash. The graffiti leading to the mural at the end is colorful and vibrant.. You don’t see a lot of underground tunnels anywhere that are this artful and clean.. Most of the ones I have been through in Europe are about a step up from being a toilet.. a very small step. And you better be watching that step.. 😛
A pleasant surprise
Photography as Art My Fine Art America
I am a big fan of old abandoned places.. and if they are derelict and covered in graffiti, street art and music or movie posters.. all the better..
When we were in Barcelona, exploring the narrow alleys and side streets, we came across an open plaza and this scene.. The building had obviously burned, at some point in the past, and had since been layered in street art and music posters..
I love stumbling across scenes like this… I have always believed that the best photographic opportunities, when traveling, come when you least expect them.
A copy of this print will be on display in Ploiesti, Romania at the Museum of Art starting Aug 19, 2014.. It is also available here at my Fine Art America website.. stop by and check it out….
