Photograph: “L1000956” by Cooper Smith (username “Cooper Smith” on Flickr).

Originally shared on the Photofocus Flickr community right here.

Why I picked this image: Minimalist modern architecture is a great place for street photography. These scenes have a lot of structure, lines and circles that are often white or grey and well-lit. Placing a human element at the right place and capture it with perfect timing is what makes these images popular. Usually I like to capture these settings in black & white. But in this scene I think that the bright blue jeans compliment the cold light that fills this room.

When I’m in a location like this I often try to capture the image like it is a scene in a space ship :)
