Today, we metaphorically climb the staircase at Tate Britain that was the feature of my last post – Disappearing Act – and very shortly find ourselves in a vast dimly-lit, high-ceilinged cathedral-like space. The contrast from the brightly coloured staircase was dramatic.
I stood in this space and watched people – dwarfed by the space – moving through it and others standing stock still. A Canon G10 was not the ideal camera for use in such a space. It had the advantage of being unobtrusive, but not best for low light, rapid fire or ease of focus. A pillar provided the support, and I anchored the camera and took some images.
Most images were duds. This was the one stand-out image. It could be sharper and it’s noisier than I would like despite Topaz DeNoise, but it sums up this vast space. I’m not sure if this man was really staring me down, or whether it just looks like that, but at least he stood still at the right point in the frame. For which I am grateful.
