A pop of colour
The subject matter for Photography101 is A Pop of Colour and here is what they have to say:
Colors can stir emotions within us, tell stories, and transform our images. Today, use one color to add life or drama to your shot.
The colors in our photographs are evocative and rouse emotions within us. Color can elevate a mundane image into something intriguing and meaningful, and can tell a particular story within the frame.
Now for me, the difficult part was not finding some colour or having it stand out as I live in London, urban grey surroundings, so anything colourful stands out in comparison.
The challenge was to capture something that might tell a story or invoke some kind of thought from the person viewing it.
I hope I did this with the image below.
The first shot was taken low down, which I think gives more depth and interest factor don’t you?
Both are taken with my iPhone6 this morning, yup I took many photos including one of people on a bus again!!!!
I even took one of cigarette butts on a bin and a pigeon, all in the name of Photo101.
The second image here is of the same thing but different angle, more over the top, central and to me not as dramatic of appealing.
One doesn’t have the sense of focus as much on the band, it means less, wouldn’t you say?
My question to you now is what if anything does my main, the top photo bring to you, does it make you think of something other than it simply being a pavement with a few leaves and a pink band?
To me my focus is the pink band, the desolate pavement, the length of the pavement infront, where one presumes the person went who lost or threw away the hair tie.
Will she be mortified when she realizes it is lost?
Did her brother pull it out of her hair?
Will she get home and realize it was her one and only beloved pink band and she only has blue left?
Was her brother using it as a sling shot having stolen it out of his siblings room?
Was it on a teddy, perhaps the teddy fell out of the pram too, someone picked that up but the band is left as a testament to a child’s loss of favourite cuddly being?
Perhaps an alien abducted the child and the band fell out of her hair as she was whipped up in to the UFO?
What do you think?
Thank you for reading, viewing, Justine xx
