A fine stamp of a street

Brisbane Street kinks from Oxford Street down to Goulbourn Street, just before Whitlam Square.

This is my contribution to the Weekend in Black and White community.

Great photo in B&W, Julie!

It looks a good street. Loads of lines of all kinds, softened by the trees. Attractive.

Marie said...

Love this one. Perfect composition of the street and it's surroundings.

Great composition for a B&W shot, Julie. I might have been tempted to crop out the blatant liquor sign, risking losing the perspective you achieved here.

The liquor sign was my starting point, then the kink. By then the woman walking down the centre had gone off to the right. Darn her!

Terrific street scene!

Joan Elizabeth said...

It is so city. So ordinary. And yet somehow delightful. You can see the different ages of architecture, building materials etc. Yep I like it.

Bob Crowe said...

It looks like parts of London, perhaps one of the nicer roads north of the other Oxford Street.

I like this perspective and I think the liquor sign contributes to the 'old time' feeling along with the painted bricks and the angled rook. Lots of interesting elements make a great shot.

great shot. All lines are vertical. You stood on a good place I think. :)

Lachezar said...

Love the atmosphere of the empty street, I guess and early morning shot!

Rejen said...

Lovely shot...;-D

Beautiful composition Julie. You are making me think I need to get out and focus on B&W at least once a week.

I like this!!!

It involves looking with a different head, Rae. I take all my images in colour and then choose which to convert. For a landscape, I am looking for line and shape, and also perspective. I am also looking for a range of shades.
