Some people cast a long shadow
Working a full-time job, it is often difficult to go out and take photos, so one has to make do with what’s available. I’ve taken hundreds of photos from my office on the 12th floor close to Liverpool Street. This photo is from that series which I call, ‘From the 12th floor’.
One of the reasons I love this photo is because its title came before the photo. I was watching the curious long shadows being made on the wet surface and thought it was peculiar and interesting. The picture however, could only work if the long shadows were contrasted with normal shadows so I had to wait for the right moment where both were being cast at the same time and the rest of the frame was relatively clutter free.
I tried zoom outs and zoom ins but this particular focal length seemed to work best.
