VERY good idea, Mark, was having the same when I was in Hamburg last weekend and saw many of them, some quite appealing. My only problem (so far) is that I haven't photographed any of them as of now. I only see them from the train - with the train rushing past. And most of the nicest ones are on the concrete sides of when the train gradually goes underground: VEEERRRRY dangerous, as to: impossible, to walk there for some good photos... !
But just wait: sooner or later I, too, will have "my contributions" to this very interesting theme! :green to: :greenpbl:
ps ...the image is captured on ilford xp2 mid-winter, mid-morning, no-sun 2003
That's some intense grafitti you have in your shot, Jack. I like how the left and right sides blend pretty well because of its b&w nature and the weath of grafitti.
(btw - just realised im breaking the critique rules of Photo Themes.
wont make habit of it - sorry)
glad you like that one :0) yeah .... err it looks 'different' in mono.
it was a b&w film so i dont possess a color image. in reality its very raccous
day-glo electro '83 stylee lol *backspins to Man Parish*
trying to critique technically, the aperture (im almost certain would have
been 8 or 5.6) at the time - perhaps this is giving the central-point a flatter
i really want to stage some contrived shoot with models or a band or
something, at this location before its redeveloped.
also, i came across an 'installation' artist/photographer who places
flourescent and colored lamps within the abandoned concrete structures
in Normandy, from D-Day era. i wish i could remember his name -
but his nightphotography looks awesome. im considering loosely
emulating his ideas within this factory too. it contains lots of smashed
machinery and offices.
EDIT: re: aperture, you can see it just beginning to loose-it, on the wooden beam/pillar, to the left. :0)
