Black and White Minimalist Photograph of a Patch of Paint on a wall versus the Partially Open White Window at Jawahar Kala Kendra, Jaipur - India.


The starting point here was the Patch of Paint in the foreground. Next, I looked for a complimentary subject.

In doing so, I found this open flap of a White Window. Then, I re-did my frame to make sure only a part of both the Paint Patch and the Window was visible, so as to create some mystery in the frame.

When I captured this, Jawahar Kala Kendra was in the process of re-painting the walls and therefore you even see the paint brush stokes on the wall. I generally don't like fine cracks in the wall but it looks good in a photograph so no complaints.

This did not require much editing. I shot this colored but I converted this into black and white to remove any color distraction so that one could concentrate on the juxtaposition of the Paint Patch and the Partial Window.

The EXIF Data of the Photo is as follows:
