Chicago 2010. No specific reason for an empty street.
But that was a good (and maybe the only) reason to take a photo or two …
love the first photo!
What an astonishing – almost surreal depiction of historical, lineal and atmospheric perspective. A brilliant photograph – starting with naturally occurring sepia tints suitable to the older buildings in the foreground, then merging to the blues of stark modernity, leading to a vague, apparently empty future.
Those stretch limousines are hoot. The chassis must be incredibly strong – and heavy – to support that long middle section. Despite that, they always seem to be sagging slightly in the middle, which makes them seem ridiculous rather than glamorous. I was conveyed in one around Hong Kong a few years ago, and eventually asked the driver if I could sit up in front with him as the view was better and it was impossible to talk to him from so far away at the back.
I’m very pleased you noticed the subtle coloring of the picture, and the whole analysis is great, opening new thoughts and meanings. – Thank you, Rigby.
Can’t say I’ve ever seen an empty street in Chicago. I think you captured something special!🙂
I was already on the other side of the street, but I had to return to capture this ’emptiness’ …!
