Illumination of an Ordinary Urban Space

I snapped this photo in haste while wandering around Dàtóng District 大同區 a few hours ago. It is, in some sense, an utterly ordinary scene: a street light illuminating an emptiness in the otherwise cluttered urban landscape of downtown Taipei 台北. There is no story to this photograph, only a feeling to convey—a cinematic quality, a silent scream in the concrete matrix.

  1. Because of the image processing (denoising and smoothing it out, basically) applied by the camera of your Samsung, this photo looks like a videogame screenshot!

    Thanks for sharing. I love it when I wander at night in Taipei and fall on this kind of scenery.
