More moody Brugge, from the camera

I shoot empty streets, cities without people. It’s not a strictly conscious thing; I think it’s that I don’t want anything in the shot to ruin things, and you know how people tend to go around ruining things.

Wait! That’s not a very optimistic worldview. I don’t really mean it. (Well, a little. People make things wonderful, too, at turns.) But people can be quite deft at ruining things aesthetically. They tend to create noise, visual pollution*. (Far too many colors in contemporary sartorial options.)  I’m just an editing observer.

Anyway, don’t these streets look divinely inviting and mysterious, sans populous? Yes they do.



*Ditto cars. Cars are forever diminishing the aesthetics of street scenes the world over, though quite useful at identifying the decade or year.
