A window facing bars. Not a jail but a water treatment plant.


Distortions

Old glass is great for nice distortions, especially the reflections. 


The Weekend

Walking the neighbourhood you could be envious of many of the wonderful balconies. Pity is you almost never see anyone using them.


Fading

The fading sign of a grocery formerly a stable and now a home.


Not a Clue

I haven’t a clue what this is about or why it’s on this wall. But I walk by it often and it has grown on me.


Simple

Sometimes simple things need a little help to make their point. I gave the reflection a little definition.


Doorway

Not sure if this was a restaurant or a club but it had a few airs. My editing enhanced the reflections in the marble surrounding the door to underline the alley in which it was found.


Modesty

This modest home was facing a very busy road.  


Two Doors

They call this a semi-attached, nonetheless attached or otherwise the column between the doors drew my eye for its vintage look.


Doors and Walls

This week is all about doors and walls. I hope you like them.


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.


The Shadow is Greater than its Source

A dull bench gives life to a shadow of strength and merit. A shadow by design or accident?


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?


Why?

Bricked up windows have always bothered me. They just leave us in the dark and give no clue as to what’s behind the wall. I feel cheated.


Showpiece

One way to make your garage stand out.


Incoherence

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.

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.

Geometric patterns, especially where there are clear flaws, have a certain appeal to the curious mind.

Walking the neighbourhood, I can’t help but see windows that raise my curiosity. 


Brutalism

To view more of my photography please click on www.rakmilphotography.com

Brutalism is a form of architecture that really does nothing except for being functional. The pretence of many modern buildings to consider themselves fine architecture is absurdism. As a photographer mockery is within our grasp.


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.


Looking About

My cure for feeling that I see nothing to shoot is to look at things from a different perspective, one not intended. This is the pedestal of a statue.
