I love taking sets of photos that seemingly have a dialogue with one another. For the Weekly Photo Challenge, I picked two pairs that dialogue both with each other, and show an unspoken dialogue between art and patron.
My problem is that I don’t know how to present them. Should it be by mood, with the seriousness of the sunglasses wearers meeting each others’ eyes contrastred with the whimsy of the second pair? Louis Armstrong is clearly amused by the silliness of his mural counterpart on behalf of the unsuspecting pedestrians, and the security grates pull the second pair of photos together.
*The two bottom murals were painted by El Nino de las Pinturas, Raúl Ruiz.
Or perhaps I should pair them by tonal values, Louis’s and Martin’s greys matching each other, and the warm earth tones of the Spanish buildings complementing one another. I think I prefer the top pairings, as the tones form pleasing diagonals. What do you think?
At the suggestion of another photographer, Tim Allen, I’ve posted the following sequence. I like it! Thanks, Tim.
