Street photography in essence
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.
This photo was taken by Magnus L Andersson in (/, ) using a Leica M Monochrom (M9) with a Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH.
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.
Camera: Leica M Monochrom (M9) (Leica)
Lens: Leica Summilux-M 35 mm f/1.4 ASPH (Leica)
Medium: Memory Card Panasonic SDHC 16GB Gold Pro (Panasonic)
Shutter speed: sec
Focal length: mm
Exposure bias: EV 0
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.
Processing by Magnus L Andersson
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.
