The Road More Traveled

cobblestone pavers
You wouldn’t want to wear high heels while walking along this road! Taken in Copenhagen, this photograph shows a route paved with cobblestones. The street’s surface is bathed in light, furthering the composition’s contrast. The sides of each stone appear darker, accentuating the large divides between one another. There is great wear on all of them, some with large amounts of pitting that adds excellent texture. The framing of this work is also of note – our eye starts in the lower right, moving with the curve of the road to the top left and then ending on the top right. It adds excellent motion to the photo. Overall, lots of interest in this one.

Thanks to Djun Kim for sharing his photo under creative commons.
