Day 219 / 365

A sign that things are looking up? or perhaps just the feeling of being unable to reach the heights we feel we should reach.
Hard contrast, moody sky, stark lines.

“Cry freedom, cry”
Yup it’s one of those navel gazing, pondering ones artistic merit kind of days.

Normal service shall be resumed shortly.

Day 174 / 365

Just saw the potential for a sneaky 365 during some down time on todays shoot. The power and fun of an iPhone, just playing around with compositions, lines, diagonals, thirds. I almost forgot why I was there in the first place . . . . . . . . . .

Alternate composition; Four Steps to the Right.

Four Steps to the Right

Somewhat simpler and in many respects I prefer it, however it’s good to break ones style now and again. I guess the second shot is the one I’d expect myself to shoot which is why I chose the diagonal one for the 365, mix things up a little.
We even managed to somehow body swerve all of the really really black rain clouds to get the real shooting finished for lunch. It has been raining pretty much since we called a wrap. Phew!

Shadows Week – Day 2

Following on from yesterdays more graphic image I thought I’d head into another themed week. I enjoyed my last theme week, the bike thing really made me put a lot more thought into my photographs for that week. So what should the theme be? well Spring is here and the weather is getting pretty darn nice. The obvious theme would be based around all the pretty blosom and flowers which have popped up over the last week. However I’ve never been one to follow the masses (by which I mean I’d expect flickr to be somewhat inundated with that kind of shot over the next week or two). Nothing wrong with that, just I like to shoot my own thing, personal work should be just that. So the theme is going to be shadows.
The bug was planted last week with “Between the Darkness”
So I figured I’d carry on and see what I come up with. Expect a lot of black & white, contrast and abstraction.
Todays shot carries on the week, with a bendy staircase and strong sunlight.
