For my second post i bring you “Train Graffiti”, from my hdr project called ” A Place For Roses”.
This is an example of a picture captured under alot of stress. I went to Aveiro station to take this picture, and at least here in Portugal, people raise questions about shooting in public places such as this one. I took the shot from this train all covered in grafitti, and after post-processing, i really loved how it ended up with a “warm” atmosphere, that go pretty well with all the grafitti colors. At the time i tried to take another shot from a different angle, when i was approached by a security guy, that told me that it was not allowed to take photos inside the station. I didn’t want to create a fuzz, so i ended up packing my gear and leaving the place. Has i left it, my eyes wondered in a frenzy to find some kind od info sign advertising such prohibition…without finding one i started to wonder if it was really prohibited or just security personnel dumbness. Don’t take it the wrong way, i respect security personnel, but sometimes they can be pretty blindfolded people.
Do you think that writting an e-mail to the station administration asking for permission is enough to get the necessary authorization? I’m considering doing that.
