Stone Painting In Red Hook


I can’t tell you what it is I see in these types of images that makes me want to record them. Some photographers would walk right past it. I couldn’t.

  3. Probably because you understood instantly that graffiti and HDR go very well together. It’s about capturing the rapidly made painting on the wall. They use spray can paints which means that the graffiti art is a Technicolor art (no offense) and that is often difficult to catch when using conventional technique. One gets an image, allright – but the result is sometimes flat. I bet this is probably in conformity with the artist’s/artists’ intentions.

  4. Imagine being a human (or other intelligent life force) 2 or 3 centuries from now and finding this photo. What was it that these people were trying to convey? Is this the way they passed information between each other?

    Or………..an Easter Island of the modern day world……….?
