Hugo on the High Line – My grandson, then 14 months old, accompanied me on my first trip to New York City’s High Line – an elevated promenade built upon old train tracks on the lower west side of Manhattan. Most of the decking on the High Line is made of long concrete planks, somewhat reminiscent of boardwalk planking, but some sections are made of this thinly-slatted, silver metal industrial grate material. Hugo left his stroller and took off! Shot in color, his silhouette and the reflective properties of the diagonal decking gave the image a black and white appearance anyway, so I took it all the way. It uses a high perspective (my 5’9″ to Hugo’s 30″ give or take). He is slightly off center horizontally and Hugo and his shadow add symmetry to the vertical perspective. Not sure if i would call this a one point perspective or not. The seam of the decking, seen at left, points off into the direction Hugo is heading! Other than applying a black and white filter, it is straight from the iPhone 5.
