Walls can speak. This one, like very
many others, speaks about history.

Perfect timing, inclusion of the pedestrians supports the mural without hiding any of it essential elements.

Here's another mural ... not about history ... which
also includes a bit of obstruction. The sign post and
tree are unavoidable, but can be dealt with so as to
provide a bit of "setting" without obscuring essential
elements. The passing car serves a similar purpose.
I shot some frames with no traffic, but then I shot a
number frames to get a car located where it would
serve that purpose without hiding much of the mural.
Most of what got hidden by the car is just pavement.
Without the moving car, the scene looks more static.

How long did you have to wait for the right car?

I wonder if you could shoot from two slightly different horizontal viewpoints and use the parallax between the two to edit out the tree and the pole.

I believe that could be done. :afro:

About a dozen frames but I haven't really checked out
whether this happened early, late, or mid sequence. I
always cancel the instant review thing, so I don't see
the actual moment until I check the whole batch, and
then if I have one two keepers, it's a wrap :-)

Thaz possible. And I could shoot when there's no cars
in the street. I could even do it in the daytime, so the
colors and lighting would be more natural. But I'm not
working for the muralist ;-)

OTOH even if I wanted a more "true" rendering of his
[or her?] creation, the obstructions MUST be included.

_______________________________________


The tree and lamp post are only about 8 feet out from
the wall so that no viewer, anywhere, any time, would
ever experience the whole mural without the tree and
the post. If you'd stand close enuf to put those things
behind you, then you'll be way too close to view the
whole mural, or even most of it. You'd be almost part
of it. I did try including pedestrians, but I chose only
one frame to edit, and this is it.

IOW the mural and immediate context are one entity.
Adding the traffic and night-scene lighting is my way
of magnifying the context. I am not moved to do the
toadall opposite. I'd studied this scene several nights
[over some months] before bringing a camera.

The tight distances in this scene means that, if you
want to do that, you'll need to capture the vertical
dimension, without vertical perspective effects, via
a rather wide lens, and record more than 2 frames,
prolly 4, to reconstruct the unobstructed mural.

BTW altho the resolution here in the forum doesn't
reveal it the lamp post and the tree have their own
share of worthwhile detail, so they are keepers.

Below is a detail crop of what I mean:
