Don't shoot me

50mm, 1/2500, f/1.4, ISO 200. Shot on a full-frame camera.


This post is about distorting reality with your camera :) The subject of the picture is a statue on the Avenyn, in central Gothenburg. The statue shows a revolver with a knotted barrel. It's a replica of the "Non-Violence" statue in New York. Apparently, there are 17 replicas around the world.

The statue is a clear statement against violence. However, by framing it very tight, the knotted barrel has disappeared and it looks like the gun is pointing straight at the viewer. And they say a picture is worth a thousand words ;) 

That's it for now...
