Street: Lagos, Western Algarve – Portugal

The second photo assignment in the WordPress Photo 101 is Street.

Today’s assignment was to capture an establishing shot – a wide-angle photo that sets up a street scene. We had to consider basic components: a foreground and a background. The foreground being the part that’s nearest to the viewer, and where you can place the subject or focal point of your picture.

I chose this photograph because not only did it had a foreground it also had depth.

    Excellent photo – as you say it shows depth and perspective very well. Must have been early in the morning in Lagos – there’s no one about!

  2. It was in the winter 🙂 Lunchtime, if I remember correctly
