Closed On Sunday

Discover The Pattern

Shops in the city cover their windows with heavy metal gates to prevent theft and damage after hours. I passed by a number of these gates during a casual stroll today. By shooting from an oblique angle, I was able to get the get the lines of the gate to converge in an interesting way.

(There's no particular magic to this technique. You can get the same effect with a phone camera. Just find some parallel lines and shoot them from an angle. Try it! It's fun!)

The gate was painted in drab, uninteresting gray. I converted the image to black & white to focus attention on the shape of the lines and the texture of the metal. I hope you like the result!

Camera: Sony A7R II

Light happens. Be ready. Shoot hard.
