I am usually a pedestrian, and actually take pride in the fact I love to walk all over this city. Granted, if I felt safer on these streets I would be a bicyclist as well. But I digress. Usually while walking through the city streets and parks it is the non human things that I notice. The textures, patterns, colours of common and often overlooked or unnoticed objects. Occasionally, as has been the case this past week, I happen to include pedestrians in my shots. I don't know what it is, but something about their pose, or their outfits, or the entire scene gives me the urge to capture the moment. I have two faux paintings in my apartment that are what I refer to as Motel Art. They are scenes of busy streetscapes probably in Europe and they are full of pedestrians, but yet they almost seem blurred, and there are no fine details. I love them. And when I am out, and working on this new series I have these "paintings" in mind. I found these "painting" in a junk shop. Goes to show you can be inspired by another's trash.
The first image is a shot of my inspirational "paintings"...
