The Keystone Caps

David McMahon

Melbourne, Australia

Artist's Description

The factor that really caught my attention here, at an open-air stall on a crowded street in Kuala Lumpur, was the sheer simplicity of what I saw.

Just two caps hanging vertically from a line would not normally attract my gaze, but there was a certain symmetry at play, as well as the fact that there were no other caps and therefore no other colours or designs – and no clutter.

The light was great and I knew if I could wait for the crowds to clear, I could get a tight shot that would still present the other objects on display in soft focus.

I do not crop, enhance or post-edit my images in any way. Shot with a Pentax K100D, using a Sigma 18-125mm lens. F8, 1/60 sec, ISO 800, focal length 78mm.
