Neurda's Wall

Neurda's Wall

Artist: Solfann? This is the wall almost in front of the Santiago house of Neruda, a Nobel Laureate in Poetry. Here the images are likely commissioned, but also with messages that are tolerated more than censored. Neruda was a political man, and strong messages seem somehow correct near his home, the Bohemian neighborhood of which is full of graphiti. Nonchalantly parked bicycles added an element of the prosaic to anchor the otherwise overly graphic image. The photo was taken with an in-camera HDR setting. The various intensities of light would have otherwise washed out the image, but the compromise left a halo that seem too intentionally artistic. Next time I will take a tripod.
