“Look up” I say to my students during photo walks. There are many rich photo opportunities to be had if we simply raise our eyes (followed by our camera lenses) even just a few feet above eye level – but with a new kind of dalliance emerging beneath our feet, I’m currently more inclined to say “Look down.”
Since the pandemic, the pavements have been sprayed, stencilled, glued, stickered, chalked and painted creating a new dance of shapes, lines, marks and textures on our streets.
These temporary graphics look great against the different background textures and patterns of the streets and when the sun shines, yet another shape layer is introduced as shadows fall across them.
Below are a few of my favourites photographed mostly on the streets of Weymouth, Dorset.
Send me your street markings photos
I’d love to see what’s happening on the pavements and walls of your town. Send me up to 3 of your best pandemic-related ONLY street markings, (that’s street markings that have appeared because of the pandemic) and I’ll post a gallery of the best here on iPhoneographyCentral.com with a credit.
Deadline 1 November 2020
Send your photos to nicki@iPhoneographyCentral.com
