When I got to this dark alley, I was very intrigued by the dark walls in contrast with the lighter buildings passed the alley. The left wall especially has changes in shades that made it appear old, reminding me of Atget's photos of Old Paris. The graffiti on the right wall was also something I saw frequently as I walked around in central Oakland. One of the main differences this photo has from Atget's photos is that it feels very narrow, whereas Atget's frames are wider. This photo does not leave a lot of room for space and feels anxious; Atget's feel more serene. While I feel like it was asuccessful photograph, I don't think it was successful for an emulation of Atget's work.
Is this a good/useful/informative piece of content to include in the project? Have your say!
