On the streets of Marseilles by gilad On the streets of Marseilles by gilad

The hungry for love go where the sun always sets
The thirsty for success drink from the river of dreams
The lost souls roam endlessly the streets of Marseilles
Waiting for someone to bring them hunger and thirst
Meanwhile, a lonely dog is guarding the streets of Marseilles
Barking at the naked pavement and heavy sky above
Hoping it will bring the rain and wash out another day
Suddenly, a feeling of hunger, a feeling of thirst...
On the streets of Marseilles


****

HDR made with 4 different exposures,
On the streets of Marseilles, France.

Dear Gilad,

I know it's not like some good art, but I dedicate my photo "Messenger from the Sun" to you, since this picture gave me the inspiration for it. :)

The words set this photo to life for real. How I can feel the wind blowing on the streets of Marseilles, the dog barks, a silent muttering, whispers in the air. The closed windows, are the people there lost or found, the open ones, how wishes fly out to the night air to fill it with love, longing, hope. Magical, even a bit scary, but definitely beautiful.

The buildings seem gigantic, is it because of the focal length ? The HDR made a nice deal here to found the balance between the sky and the dark street.

You made a nice representation of Marseilles, even if I never went to this city, I dream it like a very wide city by its feelings. Like a schizophrenic but with with not only two but several personalities, and they fit each other well. Those faces of Marseilles doesn't impige on each other, it's like if there were many cities in one.

I hope you saw the great sun there can be there, because most of your shots in Marseilles seem to be done under a covered sky ...

I've just something to add. Personally, I'd put the dog totally in the frame, not cutting its paws, but I guess it was a choice beetween the dog or the window at the top. Maybe it was another reason.
But I feel the dog might have added a touch of life in the foreground of the shot, and made a more alive feeling about this lovely street.

This is a just a little point, a detail. And like Da Vinci said: Details makes perfection, but perfection isn't a detail.

Obviously, it's still a very interesting shot ;)
