Excerpt

 

Street photography in essence

 

Description

Marrakech is more than the old city, and this image is literally bridging the old city on the right- and the new one on the left-hand side of the road, which in itself also mirrors the old that moves out and the new that takes over.

Background

This photo was taken 20170930 by Magnus L Andersson in Marrakech-Medina (Marrakesh/Marrakesh-Tensift-El Haouz, Morocco) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.

Comments

This photo was taken since the road sign looked funny to me. But the more one reflects the more one realizes that it actually carries a story about bridges and crossroads of the old and new.

The settings reflect that it was taken at a point of the day with bright sun and heat over 35 degrees Celsius, and hard to see what I could have done differently.

Comments

The only processing of this image was a square cropping and choosing a Polaroid 665 Negative HC (Affinity) emulation which increases the exposure of the mid-tones in the image.
