It was the light that attracted me to this scene.

Out for trash after a generation of hard times in a restaurant.

 


Lonely and Abandoned

Good chairs are lived in and hard to part with.


Clothesline

I can be excused for at first thinking this was a clothesline. Still interesting art.

You never know what you will find in the garden.


Wonder Has Many Forms (Two Photographs)

This was a take on a wall mural on corrugated metal. I was not sure if the colour or black and white worked best. In the end I decided the differences were so great that they are two different photographs.


Shadows Make Good

This widget usually holds a hose. The shadows make the picture. Hose notwithstanding.


Shadows

It’s often the off-kilter shadow that catches the eye, that makes things real.


Props (Two Photographs)

Without props what would we be, some more evident than others, truth be told most of us have more than one, they reassure.


On the Edge of a Curb

Are the shoes waiting in anticipation? Is it a game, a work of art, a matter of abandonment or a statement about being barefooted?


Showpiece

One way to make your garage stand out.


Incoherence

Incoherence is an interesting phenomenon. There are four possible reactions: to walk away, to try and understand, to excuse it for what it is, or to get angry.


Imagination (Two Photographs)

There are two words that trigger imagination if not investigation – why and what. Making people stop and think is one way of engaging an audience.


Faces

Seeing a lot of faces lately, socially distanced of course.


Hail Fellow, Well Met

Not a common sight.


Not Staged

I am always cautious photographing people, more because I do not want to upset anyone. But this photo is a tableau, more than just about the human element.


Not Xmas

Walking by a house where Christmas lingers along with some homemade summer bird houses struck me as unusual but I liked the way the bird houses looked.


What the Window Sees

One technique I like is using window reflection to frame something that then becomes the subject; catching the eye or causing the viewer to think.


Ruins

These are the ruins of an old bike shop. Abandoned places like this make for great photography.


Nothing Here

I cannot think of a better way to say that there is nothing here.


Glass No.1

In my street photography I have found glass to be a wonderful part of any subject.


Chinatown

A bench with cut outs and some shadows. Simply interesting.

One of the better ideas in street photography is to take things out of context. Or find things in odd contexts.


Discards

Discards or a feature in the garden. Who knows, I was just walking by.
