Title: Repel

About the Photo:

I have a habit to take long evening walks (with my camera of course) at a certain industrial area in coastal Helsinki. This time I saw an opportunity to shoot that bright, rising moon between the beautifully corroded fence – all in a warm sunset light – so I went closer to the fence. That’s when I noticed this one bent pole. Luckily I was equipped with my 50 mm lens so I was able to capture both the moon and the fence. I actually like the fact that the fence is not 100 % sharp, and I happen to also like that mushy film-like look of the oldish lens. I’ve come to notice that people tend to see this symbolising “Moon’s power”, but from the get-go I’ve had an opposite mindset – hence the name “Repel”.
