I have a tendency to take tilted photos, but this time, it was because I was nervous.
When I worked at the photo studio, one of my coworkers was always laughing how my pictures seemed to have a tilt to them. I have worked on correcting it through awareness and post editing. However, in this shot, my natural tilt came out again and probably because I was a little anxious. I was wandering around taking pictures of buildings downtown and came upon this abandoned one. As I walked up to the door, I noticed a homeless man sleeping there on the right. About the same time, there was a strange noise that startled me. Not that all homeless people are dangerous, but I have met a few here and there who have been aggressive and made me uncomfortable. I also try to respect all people and not just photograph them without their consent. So between the noise and the sudden awareness that there was someone next to the door, I was shooting on pure reflex, which includes my natural tilt. So I figured, I may as well not edit it out as it is now part of the picture’s story.
