Monochrome Madness 2-3

A total phrambles.

I’m wholeheartedly running with Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness Challenge as a spur to help me a) learn more about photography and get out there with my trusty camera and b) see even more of Seoul. Or at least, see bits of Seoul I may or may not already know from a more appreciative standpoint. That standpoint being behind a lens.

This was taken on my first venture out to try some street photography. I can’t do the whole gettin-up-in-people’s-faces business, so I’m trying a lot of hanging around in likely places to see what happens and who walks into my frame, a bit of highly blurred and wonky shooting from the hip, some setting up to look like I’m trying to take something interesting when I’m really waiting for something interesting to happen in front of a good backdrop, and a lot of random shutter-firing at things that look like they might come out well.

This was one of the day’s surprises. Having totally failed to compose anything interesting on what had looked like a promising bridge crossing, I turned around and captured this on spec. I then realised I’d turned right into the afternoon sun, and so didn’t even bother to check what I’d got, thinking it would be useless.

When I got home, I found this antiquated-looking scene. One of the better outcomes from the day. Depending on what you think of the picture, that might say a lot about the day!
