BLUE BONNETS AND BOOTS

Posted: June 16, 2016 in Automobiles, Blue, Cars, Details, Old cars, Photography, Rust, Wabi Sabi

I’m always a sucker for a shiny red car, but I do love these old blues and greens. 

As of yesterday, my right eye is now sporting a snappy new lens. (Left eye is scheduled for Tuesday.) Since many of you are photographers or artists in another medium,  I think you would find this whole light perception thing to be fascinating. If I use only my left eye, the world has a soft, yellowish tint, as though illuminated by an old-fashioned lightbulb. If I use only my new eye, yowzah! Now everything is brighter, with a clean blue-white glow, much like an iPad.  As I review this post on the screen, there is a marked difference in how I perceive the shots, depending on which eye I use.

I think I will like my new windows on the world, though all this brightness will take some getting used to. (“Vampire Photographer Adjusts to Lights in the New World. Film at 11:00”)

    Hi Patricia, Fascinating both medically and artistically. It doesn’t hamper your keen eye for composition and detail of old cars. I love the colors- terrific series. Good luck with the other eye!

    • Thanks, Jane. Yesterday, I looked pirate-esque for a while, but today there’s no outward sign. Oh brave new world–this used to be a major medical event. Now the major caution was that I could go to the gym today, but shouldn’t lift really heavy weights. 🙂

    I’m so with you.

    Did you lift any boots or bonnets or was that infringing on old car privacy?

    Well, I hope both eyes are good and equivalent now and you are newly inspired. Great shots of nicely camouflaged cars.
