Tonal urban detail...

21st April 2017

My eyes often draw my camera towards detail especially in an urban setting where close up detail appears to complement the surrounding colour tones. The solo splash of vibrant colour in this shot is purple industrial size rubbish recycling bin in the background of this shot - looking 'down' Hobson's Passage in Cambridge - which draws the viewers gaze from the discarded cigarette butts along the passage. Perhaps, like me, the viewer is prompted to imagine the many conversations to have taken place around the ash tray between the puffs and drags of many a workers smoking break.
