On my way to lunch, I passed a desiccated section of a parking lot. Paint was dried and chipped, especially on the yellow tapered curb that echoes the slope of the handicapped ramp and borders the red, rubberized mat. There is a pole that juts out and reaches the plane at which the camera snapped […]
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’m not exactly sure how the round water valve cover came to be surrounded by an oval. It doesn’t look like a machine-made cut. I like this photo for this mystery and that it could be a Ptolemaic schematic in which the earth is the center of everything.
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 […]
