Literal Grid

This is DP’s Photo Challenge theme from Michelle Webber: “We often superimpose a mental grid over things we photograph to help with composition. This week, letโ€™s go literal.”

Just coincidentally, yesterday I had shot the new grid of Amsterdam Central Station’s roof. It reads Amsterdam. If I ever get a chance, I will shoot it from a helicopter! ๐Ÿ˜‰

    1. Hey Debbie! Good to see you around because the Cafe is closed again today! I’m very sad.
      I do love when this happens. It has happened already a few times, so I make jokes at home saying that I have a sense of foresight…
      Have a great new week!


  1. I am so in love with these images and think it would be so cool if you could complete the set from the air in a helicopter. Everything makes them wonderful – the subject, the angles, the colors, the perfect sky as a backdrop. I said ‘Wow’ to myself the moment I saw these. I am desperately searching for a grid here in Fiji but may come up short. Still have a bit of time though..I am on a mission but I don’t think anything I come up with will be as cool as this!


    1. Whist I’m happy and humbled by your lovely words, I truly think that this was way too easy a subject to shoot, because the roof structure is inviting to shoot from all angles you can think of; the design is beautiful; the colors are vibrant; and the sun was shining! And I was lucky to have done it and able to use it for the theme.
      What is really a challenge is to be in Fiji, surrounded by sea and stunning open sights, and find a grid to shoot. And I am sure you will come up with something, if you don’t look for one but invent one. Just a thought. You have a skilled eye to find and capture beauty, so perhaps you could jus put a frame in front of of it. ๐Ÿ˜‰

  2. Oh, gecko poop. Now I have one more thing to do in Amsterdam. First, the bridge, now shoot the train station canopy. This is a lovely capture…nice angles, lines. And of course, colors.


What do you think? I'd love to hear it all.
