OUTER SUBURBS 228 – CAR BESIDE FENCE, EARLY LIGHT 2

 

 


.

Walking in the lockdown, and – deja vu – finding another car beside another new fence lit by the bright, early morning sun; this one had just been sprinkled by a light rain shower.

The earlier post is here .

OUTER SUBURBS 225 – PARKED CAR 12

 

 


.

Looking at a BMW, not in any envious or possessive way, but rather seeing this confection of glass, metal, plastic and rubber more as a still life, looking at its shapes and lines, seeing how it reflects the light.  And so to processing the image, and to two crops.  The one above is more conventional, whereas the one below looks at just a part of the upper image and is more Minimalist.

OUTER SUBURBS 224 – WALL BESIDE PARKED CAR, EARLY LIGHT

 

 


.
Walking in the lockdown, beside a brick wall beside a car.  And although built quite recently – probably with an eye more to economy rather than to quality, it seems – the wall is already stained by the weather and starting to disintegrate, shedding fragments onto the dark pavement below.  The sleek, clean lines of the car’s shadow serve only to highlight the down at heel Modernity languishing mutely beside it.

ARCHIVE 468 – PARKED CAR REFLECTING CHAOS AND TWO WOMEN (MONO + COLOUR)

 

 


.

Park Street, central Bristol; 3 Dec 2013.

The chaos and complexity of a city, perhaps.

I’ve restored the reds and magentas in an understated way, and this has given slight flesh tones to the faces of the two women, which serves to extricate them slightly from the mainly black and white mayhem that surrounds them – in all of this urban stone, metal, plastic and glass artificiality, only they are organic, real and alive.

Looking at this, (urban) chaos and mayhem are what hits me.  And especially so now, in the run up to our nation’s Great Buying Frenzy.  I used to work down in central Bristol and that inevitably colours my thoughts, but I have to say that Tuesday’s visit to the city centre produced some negative vibes – which is probably why I mostly head out the other way, into the countryside.

Technique: Canon G11 PowerShot at 99mm (35mm equiv); 800 ISO; Silver Efex Pro’s Full Dynamic Harsh preset, selectively restoring colour.
