Here are a few things I look for and like in pictures as I think about backgrounds. These walls have stories to tell.
I love this urban scene. This is my niece who I am crazy about. It was raining on us here and gusts of wind were whipping down this alley in this shoot. I like these dark walls that have the fingerprints of traffic on them. Hard working Americans zip in and out of these alleys making this city their own. The background is not too busy. The yellow posts adds character and a point of reference. The windows and vents and shades of grey add texture and dimension to this gritty urban scene. There is something romantic about these well-traveled alleys in big cities, I think they have stories to tell.
