In Mevagissey harbour, on a still morning; 24 Oct 2012.

This one is seen more up close and personal than the first of these reflections, perhaps with more of an abstract feel about it – to me the boat is an object sitting on the solid, unbending, unrippled background of its own dark reflection.

There are four sets of lines here.  Those of the reflection, which those on the right side of the boat (as we see it) seem to swing away from – maybe these two sets of lines are diverging from a common source. 

Then, left of the boat’s sharp bow, the lines are more or less horizontal, and divided from the others by the bow.  Finally, the mooring ropes and the bow produce a near vertical trend at sharp angles to everything else.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    Wonderful composition. The double turquoise rope does it for me 🙂

      Yes, you’re right – take that rope away, and the picture really loses something.

      I think that rope is sharply in focus and of course its a vibrant colour – and that those are two attributes that the other elements in the image don’t have in any abundance, so that in a way the rope is a foil for the rest – something vibrant against a duller backdrop maybe.

      Thanks for your thoughts! A

    Yes, they’re very different images, aren’t they – I can see how you might prefer on over the other. I think I ought to try more of the high key types – something of a challenge! A

    Though I like this,I prefer high key one.


This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
