Today’s photo is from one of the movie shoots we did in Birmingham (Bessemer, I think).
We had to film a couple of scenes of our main character (David, played by Mark Boone Jr.) digging through trash and collecting things.
Besides random hunks of metal, there were appliances, cars, tires, discarded hospital equipment and a host of other oversized junk. Oh yeah…and lawn chairs.
My favorite, though, were these gears. They were bright yellow and sitting beside a heap of black metal and plastic. The color contrast was amazing, as the sky was overcast, making the yellow pop like a neon sign against all of the dark concrete. Even in black and white, I think the contrast is still pretty nice.
