I pass this parking lot everyday on my walk home from work, and it always catches my eye. Usually there are a few unremarkable cars in the spaces, but on this day, maybe it was a little later or earlier than normal, the cars were gone. They had been replaced by an angular shadow that flattened the sense of depth and filled the emptiness. Not that anyone would confuse this with grainy Tri-X, but I thought I’d mention that I took this photo in color with my digital camera back when the Leica was in the shop. The walls and ground were mostly grays and tans to begin with, so I thought it would be more effective rendered in black and white.
