OUTER SUBURBS 221 – HOUSE WITH TREE IN ITS DRIVEWAY

 

 


.
Walking in the lockdown, and seeing shadows on walls, and a house too – half glimpsed – with a small tree in its driveway.

I’m not at all sure about this image.  To me it looks rather jumbled, with too much in it perhaps, but then its showing several layers – the wall + shadows in your face in the foreground, the tree + more shadows in the driveway, the decorated wall and larger tree beyond, and the barely seen house of course = ??? a series of overlapping and interlocking spaces or (even) realities???  I don’t know, but in any case I’m posting to see what you think, I’d welcome any views.

OUTER SUBURBS 220 – PHOTOGRAPHING A TREE’S SHADOW ON THE WALL OF A HOUSE, AT SUNRISE

 

 


.
Walking in the lockdown, no one else about, the streets quiet and empty.  The rising sun threw the really quite beautiful shadow of a tree onto a house beside a dingy car park, and I stepped into the scene and photographed it.

OUTER SUBURBS 219 – EARLY MORNING LIGHT

 

 


.

Walking in the early morning, walking in the lockdown.  The rising sun inches up behind houses across the road from me and, finding gaps between them, shines through onto the houses, still in shadow, beside me.

OUTER SUBURBS 216 – HOUSE WITH BURGLAR ALARM

 

 


.
Walking in the lockdown on a beautiful, clear morning.  The low angle sunlight was making the end of a block of modern housing glow, and so to a triangle of shadowed wall at lower right, and the sloping roof of the house parallel with the top of the frame. These are the design elements in the image, and just by sheer luck the burglar alarm is more or less at the intersection of the upper and right thirds (see Rule of Thirds, here).

OUTER SUBURBS 211 – HOUSE WITH NEW FENCE AND THE SHADOWS OF TREES

Walking in the lockdown, on a gloriously sunny morning – and being grateful for the TG-5’s wide angle lens.

OUTER SUBURBS 206 – EARLY MORNING, WITH TELEGRAPH POLE

 

 


.
For those who don’t know them, this is a telegraph pole with telephone lines radiating out from its top.  Telephone engineers carry short ladders that take them up to the footholds on alternate sides of the pole; above these there is a double foothold on which the engineer can place both feet while leaning back, supported by a strap around the pole, to comfortably and safely work on the phone lines.

OUTER SUBURBS 201 – STREETLIGHT

 

 


.

Dawn breaking in a cold, clear sky, and a single streetlight shining between the blank, silhouetted hulks of modern housing.

Looking at the scene from the far side of a main road, the upper shot is more or less full frame, with the TG-5 at its longest telephoto setting.  But I often get the urge to look closer into images and to make them simpler, more Minimal, and the picture below shows a lower viewpoint that eliminates the aerials and other details on the houses’ roofs, and shows the light now visible in a small notch in the silhouette, beneath a far smaller area of sky; most of this picture is black..  Which – if either – of these images so you prefer?  And why?
