I went on a uber mini photowalk last night, after my photoshoot. I didn’t have to be home immediately and decided to just LET LOOSE and do something different for a change. (I have no concept of ‘own time, own target’ these days.) There was a story behind the reason why I went for the photowalk (see, I still have to have a reason/task to do something) but because of misinformation, it seems kind of stupid to even say it now. Nevertheless, I thought I scored some pretty decent pictures of the surrounds at the Padang. At least I was pleased.
Decided to do something for The Selfie Project, as it’s been a while. I was petrified of leaving the camera alone, so whenever I heard footsteps nearby, I pretended to be fiddling with the dials. And once I was sure the coast was clear, I set the timer, ran up the steps, tried to pose nicely, ran back down because I was somehow convinced that someone was lying in wait to grab all my camera gear. I ran up and down about six times, which officially clocks my exercise quota for the year. Towards the end, I noticed some coach drivers who were resting at their vehicles, looking at me in amusement. Thank goodness, I had the shot I wanted, so I ran off!
This pathway goes right across the middle of the Padang. I saw a similar opportunity for lights and shadows in this picture, as with the Tate Modern one. Unfortunately, the man was walking along the side.
