New work: “Solitude”


Given the right subject I love to do a selective colour work from time to time. I spotted this woman sitting on her own on the bench seat with no one around in any direction and thought that it might be an interesting shot. I also like the bright red of her jacket which really stands out.

I could have moved closer and/or changed to a telephoto lens but I wanted to keep my distance and use a wide angle to show the remoteness and emptiness of the surroundings. I’ve taken quite a few shots of people from the back this year as not only does it not disturb their privacy and nobody can identify the person, I also think that it can be more natural.
