The story behind the image
I found this very old shot in the archive, and I was wondering whether it’s good enough to share? Well. You can see the image, so I, yes, I think it is okay. But please be gentle. This is one of my first photos where I deliverately explored art photography. Or rather, something I considered to be art photography at that time.
The outside wall of a soon-to-be-opened concert hall and restaurant in my hometown had been painted in light gray and dark gray. The blue steel door really stood out in the sunlight.
I still love the composition and the details of the photo. The technique is mediocre, though. The grain in the picture is terrible! Why on earth did I use high ISO film? Why? Why? Why?
Not wow. But still nice.
