The Following

An underpass with a light at the end and people walking through it in silhouette form – how could I resist to stand and shoot this?

Of course…it was a busy underpass so getting something I wanted without people walking in and out of the frame immediately around me, and having them for some sort of sense without overlapping too much at the end, was pretty darn time consuming.

I was pleased with this though, especially when I saw the family of three holding hands on the right hand side of the frame.

This underpass is quite close to the central train station in Riga, and is one way in which you can get across the busy road (other ways include simply walking, a jetpack, sitting atop a large frog or making use of a really large catapult…perhaps).

For processing I used the Urban Sickness filter within Perfect Effects by OnOne Software to create the green tinge at the edge of the light.

  1. I can fully appreciate how difficult it is to line up shots like this. You’ve done a phenomenal job, Mike
