Another photograph I took while walking the streets of Kochi in India. I was just watching this person walk and then saw my shot.
Here are two other images that work well for this assignment.
“Get lost in a thicket of signs and structures” Wolfgang Zurborn
I found this assignment hard. At first I thought of a typical street with lots of signs and structures, really busy to the eye. I found several images that were full of chaos; lots of lines, angles, colours, shapes, structures and signs. In the end I settled for an image that was relaying a lot of information to the viewer but was still calming to look at.
“Document some evidence of human ingenuity that would otherwise go unnoticed. Do it without including any humans in the picture” Michael Wolf
This is a simple photograph but one that stopped me in the street: contrasting and strong colours with a geometry.
