Is this a quiet photograph?
It is ‘quieter’ than my usual style of street photography. It is not as clear or graphic as some of my topographic images. The light is rather special. What difference does that make?
The place was quite quiet. Quieter than earlier in the day. Quieter than the developers would have hoped it would be when they built it less than a decade ago.
The image is quieter than the images which, five years ago, I imagined I would be taking in this newly developed area of the inner city. It is also quieter than it might have been if I had not been reading Gerry Badger’s essay on “The Quiet Photograph”.
Is it a quiet photograph?
Does that matter?
