This is the second picture in the ShELP series. It is quite different in content from the first but has some features one would usually recognise in a traditional landscape picture.
Looking NE along Fulwood Road, Broomhill, Sheffield.
Again any comments are more than welcome. Is this stil a landscape even though it depicts part of a city. As the definitions Luis gives in his recent post tells us ‘ landscape is generally natural’. But here most of the features in the photo are man-made, there are some plants running down the middle of the picture but they have been placed in concrete pots.
But there is still a foreground and a horizon showing the natural sky all classic features of a landscape picture. However it is framed by the buildings down the sides of the street and the view isn’t restricted by perspective but by a building in the middle of the picture which blocks the further vista. Does this make this scene part of a landscape rather than a whole landscape in its own right? Would this be ‘more’ of a landscape if the photo was taken from higher up so we could see past the buidlings?
Any thoughts? All offerings will be read and thought upon, again, there are no correct answers to this.
