Woodstock graffiti – Flickr pic of the day
This intriguing image shows a boy running past a wall of graffiti in Woodstock, a suburb of Cape Town. It was submitted to our Cape Town. Live it. Love it. group member Stiaan Schoeman aka quantumtheory.
“It was taken in Woodstock. I drive past this graffiti often, but I never have my camera with me. On this particular day I did and decided to stop and take a picture. As I got out this young boy came walking along. He saw that I had a camera and stopped out of the frame, so I could take the picture. I told him it’s okay and that he can walk past, so he started running and I started shooting,” explains Stiaan.
“The camera was on the wrong ISO, so the image came out very grainy, but in a way I think it sort of adds to the image. I like the illusion created by the clouds. When I show this image to people, it normally takes them a second to figure out exactly what’s going on,” he continues.
Do you have images of Cape Town you’d like to share with us? We’d love you to join the Cape Town. Live it. Love it. Flickr group!
