Robson Alley Play of Light
Vancouver, B.C. Canada
What struck me immediately about this late afternoon summer street scene was the incredible range of diffused but brilliant light falling upon this urban alley way. Transformed into black and white the print reveals an altered reality of what is an otherwise common everyday scene. The subject brightness range has been expanded through bracketing exposures to bring sky, clouds, buildings and street into a dazzling coherency! The location was quite near the HMV Music Store on Robson Street in downtown Vancouver.
Robson offers a magnificent variety of international restaurants and shops known world wide for its high fashion and Art Museum, just a few blocks away from this photograph's location. Photographed with a Nikon D300 and a 15mm wide angle lens. Part of a continuing series on Vancouver British Columbia, celebrating its people, architecture and beauty.
