ARCHIVE 393 – RECTANGLES WITHIN RECTANGLES

 

 


.

Caravans, Newquay, Cornwall; 10 Sept 2013.

A series of pale boxes, apparently floating in blackness.  The one on the right displays a slightly curved roof, and is leaning gently away from the vertical.  Otherwise, these are a series of rectangular shapes containing many other rectangular shapes.

There is an earlier photo in this style, including a tree, here .  It will open in a separate window.

Technique: D800 with 70-300 Nikkor lens at 300mm; 1600 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2’s Pinhole preset.

Low angle sunlight, just after sunrise: as Our Star rises, the shadows cast by the houses on the other side of the street creep slowly down this manicured suburban facade.

STILL LIFE 246 – LOOKING AT CHAIRS 23: CHAIR BEHIND DIRTY WINDOW

 

 


.

A little while back, I decided to bring down the curtain on a series of images that I was doing called Looking At Chairs.  These were mainly more or less graphic studies – because, as with cars, chairs are often visually interesting, depending upon the directions from which they are viewed, in combination with the direction and nature of the light that is falling upon them.  Some said that they’d like to see more such images and, weak-willed pawn that I am, I agreed to further posts, as and when such images surfaced.  Here is one; one or two more are in the pipeline.

The first post in this series on chairs, which contains context and an image, can be found hereSubsequent posts are here: 2 3 4 5 6 7 8  9  10  11 12 13 14 15 16 17 18 19 20 21 22 .  Each will open in a new window.

Click onto the image to open a larger version in a separate window, and click onto that image to enlarge it further – recommended.

Early morning bus, Temple Gate.

STILL LIFE 195 – PHOTOS FROM A DRENCHED CAR: 2

 

 


.
Photos taken through the streaming windows of my car during a torrential rainstorm – context and further images can be found here.

The upper image is very easy to decipher – assuming that you feel the need when faced with anything at all abstract, to know what you’re looking at – which most people do.  Its a car parked on the other side of the road with its headlights reflecting off the wet tarmac.

The lower image is a little more obscure.  Its a row of houses with – in the lower right hand corner – a woman walking under an umbrella.  Can you see her???

Click onto each image to open a larger version in a separate window.  You can click onto this larger image to enlarge it still further, but these images are very grainy.
