As I love going to the movies, I am often found in an industrial and office area of Rotterdam that in itself is not especially interesting for street photographers.
Yet for me this is a strong incentive to take my camera and try and capture some pictures with people in these for me not very attractive surroundings.
This girl was waiting for the cinema to open and apparently looking for something in her purse. The glass façade reflecting the parked bicycles and the buildings at the other side of the street persuaded me to take this photo.
For Frank’s Tuesday Photo Challenge – Reflection.
Outdoor terrace, Groothoofd, Dordrecht (Netherlands).
During one of my photo sprees I was hunting for reflections. Just when I was thinking to abandon my search, a van stopped in front of a jewellery shop, some workmen got off and began to inspect the pavement.
The shop window reflected their activities perfectly and I liked the contrast between the luxury inside and the simplicity of the coarse working clothes and movements of the men outside. An additional bonus for me is that the spotlights of the shopwindow seem to illuminate the workman.
