Girl friends

 on 


Photograph of three Asian girls crossing the road and sharing some funny topic. It was an obvious topic for a street photograph. The interaction between the girls was great and they seemed to enjoy themselves a lot. Two of them had heavy luggage with them while the third girl just joined them seconds before the lights turned green. Seems this was a girl friends reunion of some sorts.

Technically there are isometric elements in this composition. Taken at 45 degrees the photo captures the girls, who themselves walked in a triangular arrangement, against the backdrop of buildings which also expose the same angle view. It was a tricky situation as having the girls in a triangle it was difficult to have them all in the view at the same time.

Triangle

I found myself today at the sharp end of a triangle. I have noticed the girl on the phone as I passed the construction zone at the Pitt Street Mall. She was half enclosed by the construction safety tunnel and her whole front was out of it exposed to the sun. It looked a bit like the old portraits where other then the person in focus everything turns into a black void.

I took the camera and started to focus on her, when I noticed the two men on the left. From their reaction I gathered they thought I was about to photograph them. I quickly re-framed the photograph to include them in the background. The resulting image looks like a collage of two separate photographs only joined by the invisible photographer as both the men and the girl look at me at the same time.
