Art: Doorway with Street Art (City Kitty) by Artist Muriel Areno
This shot was taken in my home town of Reims, France. The cat poster, roughly glued to the wall, first attracted my attention. It is by the artist Mezzoforte, whom I tried to contact but failed. The other elements symbolize the urban landscape for me: grime, peeling paint, fading graffiti, a rain spout, the nubbly glass above the door... The old door looks like it hasn't been opened in years... but the light glowing inside is evidence of a human presence. I like to include letterforms and found textures in my art, so this was a natural. The shot was taken with a Sony W5 digital camera on an overcast summer day, in a semi-outdoor shopping gallery with a glass roof. I did minor color correction in Photoshop but otherwise left it alone. I liked the composition as is, and did not want to lose any of the rainspout or pixels by straightening it.
