Obstructed Views

Often a shot can be ruined by stuff unexpectedly getting between your camera and your subject. But I find that an obstructed view can also be very visually rewarding.

Obstructed View #2
Catching some sun through the glass of the bus shelter.

Obstructed View #3
Behind pedestrians waiting at the red light.

Obstructed View #4
Or just hiding behind some of the classic "furniture" of the city.

My sentiment exactly, Lars, very nice shots. I particularly like this one I took recently, obstructed but at the same time it's not...it shows the most important part :-p

(PS: not my brand, though, just to be clear ;))

All beautiful shots! I actually like it better that way, because the randomness catches the instant. The contrast between the faces and the blurred areas (1st pic) is amazing.

hmmm, i dont think there are "obstructed views" - a view is a view - thats what it is - it might not be the view you "want"...but it is the view that you are presented with...

nice job!

steveb: Absolutely true. "Obstructed view" is just when you are looking at it wearing the "hat of correctness".

And thanks!

Very nice photos showing the truly sense of freedom of getting a bycicle ride in a modern and cosmopolitan european capital city. Watching all these pictures, I can really feel the beautiful feeling of freedom and liberty that a simple bycilcle ride can give for those who choose it. This is a just an advice comment for our times and how we've been treating very badly our environment and its precious resources.
This is just a simple tag from a person who lives in a little city of an also european coutry and that shares this connection for our environment
