Urban Flag


A public transit station Flag snaps against an Autumn sky above bustling city traffic with the “King and Queen” towers of the north Atlanta skyline in the distance. To take reference photos of this scene, I had to wait for the light to turn red, and then stand in the lanes of oncoming traffic. Framing the shots while keeping one eye on the signal kept me so occupied that I didn’t notice the bus going by until I reviewed the finished photos. It turned out to be the element that ties all of the others in the painting together.
