Unfortunately I was running a little behind today and didn’t make the midnight deadline for my post. I guess what they say is true “better late than never”. With that being said lets move on to the photo for tonight.
I took this photo on Monday afternoon while I was walking around town after work. If you are a follower of my blog you know that I spend a lot of time in the city of Pittsburgh walking and photographing just about anything, and Monday was no exception. I walked through a part of the city I normally avoid as there is a place called Pittsburgh Popcorn and every time I get near the place I end up buying popcorn, but that’s a completely different story. So anyhow, as I was walking and eating my caramel and chocolate covered popcorn, I turned up a small one way street and saw this sign on the wall. After closer inspection I really don’t know what the reasoning is behind the sign. But I took a couple of shots and moved on. After looking at this photo I really fell in love with the simplicity of the photo and the composition. I have both a color and B&W version of the photo but feel that the B&W really makes the photo “jump”. Isn’t it amazing how sometimes the simplest of composition and subject matter can make for an interesting photo?
What do you think about my Portraits on a Wall?

I agree with your choice showing it as a black and white photo. I’m also wondering what the reason is behind this. They all appear to have on the same jacket and are making statements in the first person. It also represents a diverse group of people. Just wondering if there is more to come with this billboard??? BTW, I’ve heard great things about Pittsburgh Popcorn. Guess I need to check it out sometime, soon…
Thanks for the comment. I was back and forth on the b&w and color version. As for the reasoning behind the poster I am going to see if I can find more information. And you must check out the popcorn place when your near one, you won’t be disappointed.
I could be mistaken but I think this was a set of ads for Strata, an immersive art piece that took place in 2012.
I will have to see if I can find out any information on the poster. Thanks for the comment and the lead as to its purpose.
Sometimes black, grey and white highlight the beauty which colour confuses. This is so interesting to me – the wall acting as a frame. I think this piece is wonderful.
Thanks so much for the comment. It took me a while and a lot of thought to decide on the b&w version but I’m glad that I did. The color version as you out it is just a little confusing. Thanks Again.
