Glass Wall

Taken during my trek through Sydney CBD whilst it was raining.

I came to a bridge that I had crossed before. I’m fairly certain I decided to go that bridge and get a photo of it once more due to it being a while since I was last on it and thus could see if I had improved as a photographer.

I think this was the best shot I got.

I like that you can see the rain affecting this scene in a few ways.

The view through the glass is a bit smeared, the reflection of the glass wall’s frame (as well as a few lights) becomes visible, and you can see some of the droplets hitting the walkway part of the bridge.

I find that this image draws me in and I’m not sure why. Maybe it’s the composition.

I think the shot is a bit moody which works with the rain. Maybe it’s due to the rain that it’s moody. Not sure.

This is also my submission into the eighty-fifth Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Treasure Hunt“.

This week’s challenge has a set of things that can count:

“Sunrise and/or sunset, Something cold and/or hot, a bird, a dog, a funny sign, a bicycle, a seascape and/or mountain landscape, a rainbow, a church, a musical instrument, a boat, a plane, a waterfall.”

There’s also these:

“An expressive portrait of one or more people, a very unusual place, knitting or sewing, a fish, an animal you don’t normally see, a bucket, a hammer, a street performer, a double rainbow, multiple challenge items in a single image.”

I think this image counts as rain can be cold. It can also be warm.
Now that I think about it, it’s the same with glass.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This one is hosted by Tina. The next will be hosted by Patti.

I recommend giving the challenges a go and seeing how you interpret each theme. I also recommend checking out what other people are doing to meet the challenge.

I hope you enjoy.

    Your image has a number of interesting elements SH, and your choice of hot and cold in a single image is very creative. Kudos for your choice
