Looking back over the last couple of posts it seems I am in a bit of “Oman” phase, so I will carry on with one more image from this amazing country.
One of the first things you learn when your interest in photography goes from casual to obsessive is the power of the leading lines. These leading lines are imaginary lines in your photograph that lead your eye towards the main subject of your photo. Sometimes they can be extremely subtle, while other times they are really obvious as is the case with this image.
The photograph was taken last year in Muscat during the Faces and Places workshop with David Nightingale and Bobbi Lane while exploring the beautiful Sultan Qaboos Mosque. I visited the mosque a couple of times before and I always liked these corridors as they always seem to be pointing towards some sort of imaginary subject. So this time, I wanted to wait for a while at the beginning of one of the corridors and hope to get lucky with a person walking by at the other end. As it happened, it was a worker dressed in bright blue overalls, which I think adds some nice contrast to the scene. As always I would love to hear what you think.
