Great macondo 2018-01-14 16:56

G'day Casper.
There's something gloomy, both actually and figuratively, about the photo and the story behind it. It reminded me a bit of a PHOTO which I uploaded about 8 years ago, taken from a formerly working class enclave which is now also being furiously gentrified after a period of domination by waves of migrants. It was taken in daylight, but has some features in common with your photo, including a ferris wheel.
Your note really makes this interesting. The long exposure's worked well, aptly keeping the lights subdued and evoking the dim mood. I presume you had a tripod or held the camera against something for the duration of the exposure. Anyway, it's a welcome upload with a difference.

Hi Andrew,

Thanks for your critique. As I said to Benny I try to add a little something extra in my notes, so glad you found it interesting. Sadly there are so many areas nowadays that are being gentrified, sometimes for the better, but always at the expense of the locals! Ahh well.... I guess it is progress As for the shot, my camera was carefully placed on a ledge - a few centimetres too far and it would have plunged five floors! Luckily it is still will me today

Now off to see your shot...

All the best, Casper
