A Colorful look up Minimalist Photograph of Three Windows of a residential apartment in Jaipur City, against clear blue skies.


This is a very old Minimalist Shot that I captured on 30th November 2014. I used to have a Crop sensor Camera back then. It was Canon EOS 600D. The lens I used to carry was the Canon 55-250 mm telephoto lens.

This Look up photograph was captured when I was coming home from Tonk Road. I remember there was this huge building right opposite Imli Phatak railway crossing and I was on my Activa Scooter with the Camera hung around my neck. I stopped right outside the building and pointed my Camera upwards to capture a few shots.

Soon, I realized that I could make a nice Minimalist Color palette using the Olive Green wall and the Blue Sky as base colors.

Therefore, I captured the Image in such a way that the entire frame was split in two sections by the White Strip. One being the Olive Green section and the other one of the clear Blue Sky.

To bring in more symmetry and order in the frame I carefully placed only Three Windows on the Olive Colored Section. To make sure there wasn't any clutter I zoomed in further to crop out extra windows/pipes. I captured this photograph hence at 116 mm.
  
The Windows are open because the building was not fully constructed, only final touches were left. There were no birds flying around or I could have waited for one to fly in the frame. That would have been fun. In case you have a thing for birds in photographs then you can check my "Minimal Birds" collection in my Fineartamerica / Pixels web store.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:


  • Camera Model: Canon EOS 600 D

Hope you enjoyed the Three Windows Blue Sky Minimalist Photograph.
