Six images

I like the conversion to black and white in this series. The strong shadows in the last set prompted me to experiment and once I had pulled the color out, I had an entirely different focus for the group. Gone were the brilliant blue skies–which proved to be only a distraction–and the intense lines and shadows stepped to the fore instead.

Today’s set is not mean streets-noir-moody nor quietly meditative, but I did carry through with the black and grayscale theme. Once again, with the distraction of the color out of the way, the individual structures can be admired for their own strengths.

I just realized that she who was whining loudly for more color in her life went photo-hunting through three counties on the first eyeball-rattling sunny day in weeks, came home and converted all of that sunshine to black and white. Thanks, Wabi Sabi Eeyore.

    #2 looks like webbing made by a giant spider

  3. So grand. Looks like jewellery, all of it! 😉

    • Thank you. I love how we see things through our own predispositions. (as in…why am I not surprised you see jewelry? I am a fabric artist wanna-be so I see much of my own stuff with those glasses on.)

      • I normally support the concept of seeing things from different perspectives, but in the case of jewellery, I allow myself to have a fanatically one-sided view. 😉
        Fabric art, that sounds like a great path to explore, I can very well see a fit with your photographer’s eye there, go for it!

    Hi- Love the second especially with its contradiction of lines. Great set.
