In the summer of 2014 my Husband and I decided to take a road trip down to the south of France from Sweden to soak up some sun, and as I was deciding which books to take, I picked up my copy of Alessandra Cave‘s gem, Shooting With Soul. I ended up completing a good number of the exercises in the book but instead of doing them in order, like the book suggests, I chose to complete them whenever I felt the opportunity presented itself during that time. I also used whatever I had available in terms of gear, which was not a lot and many times presented a really limiting challenge. I did not, and could not, complete all of the projects in the book on the trip, so I shall continue them now that we’re back home in Sweden.
Exercise 28: In The City
You know a city hasn’t woken up, yet when all the rental bikes are still in their rack. The three shots below are, for me, typical city shots. Bicycles, Graffiti and Traffic Signs (with Graffiti art in them). We stopped in Luxembourg for a night on our way back from Antibes and took Bentley out for a walk one morning, which is where we saw these images.
