As well as always searching for the something new, something different, somewhere different, to photograph in the city as I’ve casually mentioned a few times before, I also like to return to previously worked areas, as a way to see if I can find something I may have missed the first, second or third time around. I find that because of the ever shifting light, and weather, of Edinburgh something new can be found even in an area I previously thought exhausted. A continual discover. Can I count that as recycling? Must be a form of recycling?
Although I have photographed this area multiple times before I still feel drawn to visit it and, so far, I have found something I think is interesting to photography. It always has something to give, something to show, something that keeps me returning and this occasion was no different as I found the picture, above, waiting to be snapped.
I wanted to utilise the concrete pillar that was in the foreground because I liked the creeping, crawling shadows that were winding round the pillar and I thought it would create an interesting dynamic in the image to have this heavily present in the foreground especially compared to the contrasting blocky shapes of the background. I think it works quite well but I would think that.
As you can see there was not much that needed to be done in post-production, just a little tweaking in the levels and I was happy to post it.
