Thursday night was let’s photograph murals in the Calgary Beltline as per the map from BUMP (Beltline Urban Murals Project) http://yycbump.ca/wp-content/uploads/2018/09/2018-BUMP-Mural-Map.pdf. Keith (http://keithsodyssey.blogspot.com/2018/12/wide-to-long.html), as always, was an enjoyable accomplice (he also had the map and the car).
This post comes in 3 parts
~ The Photos
~ A short babble about cropping
~ A list of murals. If you know of other murals, please let me know and I will add to the list.
They’re numbered left to right top to bottom. Being a clever reader, you will say to yourself, why the science fiction film still? The answer is we stumbled upon it. Actually, we drove there but did not know in advance we were also scouting for a movie.
To crop or not to crop is the question. As part of my normal post-processing workflow I may straighten or crop a photo. Except for the recent modelling work, where I have been changing the aspect ratio from 3×2 to square, I usually keep the aspect ratio to the original 3 x 2 ratio. The above photos break with that behaviour. I like the results of changing the aspect ratio to 16 x 9. I also like the way these photos have structural connections to some of my other work within the Roadside Attraction umbrella.
Artist and Mural List
Listing is alphabetical by artist and formatted as follows: Last Name, First Name / Collective; Artist’s base; Location of mural; Year mural was painted; Artist’s website; number of photograph in grid above or comment. We didn’t quite get to all the locations. In other cases I have a photo that I didn’t like.
