Sometimes, you end up with a photo that really catches your fancy, sometimes for reasons you can’t quite put into words. This photo is one of those. It’s best seen large (if you have a big enough screen). There’s something about it — the depth via the lamp in the foreground; the Hoogt sign, which blends with the brick; the string of bulbs beneath the sign; the hint of the street off to the right; the splashes of blue from the street sign and the reflection in the window — I was just really happy with this photo.
It was taken at ‘t Hoogt, a small theater/restaurant in town that shows classic films and smaller independent current films. Art house kind of stuff. I went over on Tuesday to get a photo of the place to use for a post for Trippist about the John Cassavetes retrospective they’ll be holding soon, and got this shot for myself.
I used to follow a website that gave suggested topics for photos for the day/week and I’d post the photo I took on Friday on an old blog I used to have. Maybe I’ll start doing this again, posting some of my favorite photos taken here in Utrecht. Not necessarily the more obvious tourism shots; just stuff that catches my fancy.
