Within the frame of my camera, I rearranged the parking lot elements, from my post 80 Yellow Dots, and added another, to make this photograph.
I have visited one newly refurbished parking lot several times in the past few weeks. The newly painted lines, concrete surface and rubberized pedestrian safety mats offer me, as a street photographer, the opportunity to design interesting photographs. The proximity and arrangement of these parking lot constituents, as I framed them, became geometric visual elements […]
I got another one: Why did the chicken go to the seance? . . . To get to the other side!
I have taken many photographs of fire hydrants (see Yellow Hydrant Sculpture, Fire Suppression Infrastructure, Colorful Fireplugs, Fire Plugs, Street and Parking Lot Hydrants). Rarely have I seen such a fine hydrant shadow as the one below. It was cast on a parking lot access road. The blue reflector happened to be in just the […]
I like the slant of the lettering, the perspective one sees when looking down from a height. The erosion of the paint is very interesting as well.
I like juxtapositions and, visiting a new parking lot, I found an interesting combination I hadn’t seen before: the green curb that indicates short-term (i.e., 10-30 minute) parking directly abutting a blue curb that defines a handicapped parking place.
I like this drain, tucked away in a parking lot between two curbs: one a blue used to identify handicapped parking spaces, and a nice yellow, used for contrast.
I stumbled on this parking lot space delimiter by accident the other day. It was separating a handicapped space from an area reserved for low-emission vehicles. It was very thoughtful of the designer to specify two colors: blue for handicapped and white for fuel efficiency. This would give poor parkers (see Poor Parkers post) an […]
I’d never come across this particular warning before… in writing.
As we saw the other day, the thoughtful planning by clever parking lot engineers gave rise the the double line parking space spacers. Some people seem to have problems parking. They should use the huge handicapped parking space, equivalent to large print books for have problems seeing, and leave the normal spaces to good parkers. […]
