These are two more photographs of things found on one of my walks. It’s a big question if this will be something I will be able to do this summer. Covid -19 has really put a brake on a lot of the best of life. Yes, the title applies to the second photograph).

I do not remember when I first heard the phrase “Intimate Urban Landscape” used to describe photos of bits and pieces of what we see in the urban landscape. I like it, it captures the subject without making us misuse titles like street photography or architectural photography.

I have walked this route more times than I can count, and taken almost as many photos. Today I’m wondering when I will get back there with my camera. We live in uncertain times. All is well at my end and I hope it is at yours as well.

There is an endless number of variations on how windows (with or without reflections) make for great photographs. Depending on how you process window photos you will be surprised at what is in the reflective portions. Sometimes you can mix the surreal, abstract and reality in one shot without compositing, often just by adjusting shadows and contrast.

In my view minimalist photography is all about the placement of the subject in the frame or the perspective you take. These two shots illustrate some of the possibilities. They say a good photographer has an eye for photography, but it is equally possible we learn from example.

When I wonder about town I often find myself in residential areas and there is plenty to photograph. I like shots that make you wonder about the design or who lives there, their circumstances; you let your imagination go.

I took this thinking the subject was a bent vent. It was only when I got into my digital darkroom that R2-D2 showed up. It’s always possible I stumbled on some new dimension/episode of Star Wars – who knows it was just there.
