A Black and White Minimalist Photograph of a Man commuting to work on his Bicycle and a Big Shadow Triangle formed on the Street.


This shot was taken with from Civil Lines Metro Station 1st Floor. When I went there to take a shot, the Metro Station was under construction, therefore I had easy access to the staircase.

I was with my Canon 600 D crop sensor camera with 50 mm prime lens mounted, looking down on the street.

First, I placed the Shadow Triangle on the bottom left and then I waited for people/vehicles to pass by.

I knew long shadows of such people/vehicles would be created because of the position of the Sun and because of my distance from the street the subjects that pass by would look small enough to create a a nice Minimalist Frame.

I saw this Man on Bicycle heading into my frame from a distance and I waited to place him in the frame in such a way that would allow ample Negative Space.

Negative Space and the distance from which this Minimalist Photograph was taken, converted this Street Photo into Street Minimalism. 

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 600 D
