[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
I went to the Hoe two evenings ago to photograph the underneath of the pavement above. I liked the structure and curves. But, with my camera set up on the tripod all ready to shoot, these people entered the scene. But I think they add to it. The title comes from a comment of a friend of mine. He thought it looked film noir.

Bom dia Robert.
I agree with your friend it's a true fim noir.
A very special work of art.

Hello Bob

A very interesting scene. I see the graffiti is constantly being covered. the columns add to the scene as well as these three working on feet or wheels. A lot to study in this image. nice


Hi Bob,
great PoV showing the curves and lines, the people add to the scene

Hello Bob, a very interesting picture, it was, I think, your good luck that the two people turned up and were happy to be included. I think that from the architectural point of view alone this would have been an excellent picture and that with the inclusion of the two people it very successfully takes on film noir characteristics.

Best wishes,

For me, the darkness of the scene is the fact that time seems to have frozen at once, as if space-time suddenly disrupted
