Not so mellow yellow

Tim, bright as ever

Right next to the pink wall used in Amanda's portrait, was this brightly painted, lemon yellow loading dock/ roll up door. The stripes added a bit of texture to the great colour and it seemed a perfect match /clash for Tim's stripped t-shirt. Similar light again - sunlight going in and out of the clouds. I suppose this is a non-traditional cropping of the arms and legs close to joints - you might or might not like that - I was mainly focused on trying to emphasise the stripes, stripes, stripes feel and wanted to be in close. 1DMkII, 85mm 1.8 lens

I like all the stripes! I think the crop works for this shot.

This is an amazingly bold portrait! I like it even though it hurts my eyes! All of the those lines! :-)
