Photo 101: Connection

I am slowly falling behind in my photo 101 assignments.  I could go through my photo archives and find some suitable photos, but that is sort of cheating. I want to photograph something to interpret the themes and techniques suggested in the present rather than using old photos.

It is summer in Oman and the temperatures are unbearable, making it impossible to roam around the city, looking for something to photograph. However, this morning while standing waiting for the bus, and thinking about this unattractive city, I took some photos of an unfinished overhead walkway that will allow pedestrians to connect with business on both sides of the road without fear of being killed while crossing four lanes of traffic. Then I spotted a telephone booth that was blocking my view. I have walked by this place hundreds of times without noticing this pay phone. So, in the end, I focused on the phone and unfinished pedestrian bridge as my interpretation for connect.

This overhead passage has been under construction since I arrived in Nizwa.

  1. I don’t think going through your archive to pick a picture would be cheating, if you have a suitable one. It is probably better to do that than not doing the work at all. You would be looking at your pictures in a different way when you have the assignment in mind. This too is learning!
