Doors & Windows collection entry #03
This is a door of an old house where I’ve made a lot of good memories in my childhood. Now it’s almost ruins. I still check it out when I have the chance.
I’m not very fond of this perspective, being above the subject while shooting, unless it serves my idea for the photograph such as the following photo for instance.
I wanted the photo messy and with layers of subjects so shooting from above serves that idea. If I had captured it from eye-level, it would have been a little bit flat. For someone else, it might have been a better photo. It just wasn’t what I was looking for.
This shot was taken from a window of a house in the second floor (right on top of the house in the photo). The house in the ground-floor has a sort of a hall/open space that’s roofless which is how most of Tunisia’s traditional old houses are. I lived in one for quite a while and it gets troublesome in rainy winters!
I’m not sure this fits the Ambiance photography challenge (at least not based on an immediate interpretation) but I was posting these photos anyways.
These are two very old small houses in my town that are associated with ghost stories. I used to hear a lot of scary stuff about them. Well, they’re just stories.
As soon as I finished processing them, the first word that came to mind is dread and so I called them that.
It would be great if I can shoot them again at night. The place is really isolated and I admit it’s super creepy so not doing that any time soon!
