Parking Lot, Gangmun Beach

I like the placement of the cars in the parking lot and how the ‘mast’ connects the lower and upper parts of the photograph. Everything is neatly organised, and organising the world is one of my photographic goals. I can’t do anything about the chaos of the city, but I feel better by trying to make it look good in the viewfinder.

You may be wondering what “Lifestyle Platform GS25” is about. At least two convenience store chains have the word ‘lifestyle’ in their marketing. There is a faint promise that these shops will have everything you need for a convenient and happy life. Maybe they’re not wrong; Pepsi and crisps always make me feel better.

  1. I like it when you write about your thinking behind a shot. Yes a photograph should stand alone but hearing someone’s reasoning behind taking a particular shot is good brain food for other photographers. It’s not something we hear too much of these days so thank you.

    At first glance I thought the mast was the stem of the parasol 🙂

    The composition works for me, by the way.


    1. Thank you for the encouraging comments. I’ll try to write more about my thinking when I post a photograph. I also am a bit tired of people writing about their camera settings rather than their pictures. As you say, it’s hard to find people online who do that.
