This was shot in the historic Block Arcade in central Melbourne, in 2008.
The semi-circular metal roof struts were the perfect foil for the soft light on the aches and the darker buttresses below.
By incorporating a straight roof silhouette directly above my head, I was able to use a single clearly defined horizontal point of reference in an image dominated by contrasts of arcs, angles, light and shade.
I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F6.7, 1/30 sec, ISO 400, 50mm.
