|Shades of Gray|
The above photograph was taken at the corner of Chartres Street and St. Peter Street in the French Quarter of New Orleans. When I composed this image through the viewfinder I used the top of the building and the tapering distance of St. Peter Street to create a downward slope from top left to right bottom. I knew that the slopping angle and the various building heights would add interest for the viewer. I also did this because there were cars parked on the left-side of St. Peter Street. I found that the automobiles were distracting and would have negatively impacted my desired photograph. For me, my photographic art technic starts before I press the shutter release on my camera.
