Haunting Shadows | Urban Impressionism

Collapse Show info

On Saturday I was driving back home from Johannesburg on Joe Slovo Drive, when I passed this scene. I couldn’t help to admire the elongated shadow casts against a bright orange wall. I immediately pulled off the road and thought to wait for an interesting person to walk into the scene. After waiting only a few minutes, this woman walked into the scene and I was fortunate to capture a few frames. 

 

Why the image works? 

The dark shadows, and the visual flow, created by the lines and the motion blur on the woman. I particularly like the contrast between foreground and background. Especially how the orderly lines in the foreground are juxtaposed against the chaotic shadow casts.
