Looks Just Like Grandma's Whalebone Corset

David McMahon

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

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.

Featured in UNIQUE BUILDINGS OF THE WORLD, September 2009.
