Taken during my trek through Sydney CBD whilst it was raining.
I came to a bridge that I had crossed before. I’m fairly certain I decided to go that bridge and get a photo of it once more due to it being a while since I was last on it and thus could see if I had improved as a photographer.
I think this was the best shot I got.
I like that you can see the rain affecting this scene in a few ways.
The view through the glass is a bit smeared, the reflection of the glass wall’s frame (as well as a few lights) becomes visible, and you can see some of the droplets hitting the walkway part of the bridge.
I find that this image draws me in and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the composition.
I think the shot is a bit moody which works with the rain. Maybe it’s due to the rain that it’s moody. Not sure.
This is also my submission into the eighty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.
The theme for this one is “Treasure Hunt“.
This week’s challenge has a set of things that can count:
“Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall.”
There’s also these:
“An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image.”
I think this image counts as rain can be cold. It can also be warm.
Now that I think about it, it’s the same with glass.
The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:
Week 1 – Patti
Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya
Week 3 – Amy
Week 4 – Tina
This one is hosted by Tina. The next will be hosted by Patti.
I recommend giving the challenges a go and seeing how you interpret each theme. I also recommend checking out what other people are doing to meet the challenge.
I hope you enjoy.
