It's difficult to consistently come up with new ways to see a subject once you have spent significant time with it. The view of the Oregon City Elevator is obscured in so many angles that getting a relatively clean shot of it is difficult.
Between power lines, traffic lights, and now a big black projector, the view can get super busy. I wanted to get a sense of movement into my photo and set up on the bridge during rush hour and was excited by this vantage point that minimizes the distractions surrounding the elevator.
I was really pleased with this photo, and the contrast and late day shadows made it a great candidate for black and white. I also feel the lack of color helps to make the motion stand out as an element of the shot.
This was a satisfying find with a subject that I have shot extensively. It goes to show that if you look long enough you can find ways to see a place differently.
