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.


Strange Two

The sky and the weathered concrete have an almost end of world look. Lowering highlights alway enhances great skies.

Sometime reflections add a surreal edge to a photo. The technique was much used in early cinema noire.

A proud door reflects its view.

Windows add light to this odd balloon advertising an exhibit on germs.


Glass No.5

Getting low for the reflection in a lobby creates an interesting and unusual point of view.


Glass No.4

Juxtaposition is another way I have taken photos including glass, landscape and foreground subjects.


Glass No.3

Glass for glass sake is another approach to street glass photography.


Glass No.2

Reflections can get very abstract, almost cubist.


Glass No.1

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


Wall No.7

Even fading walls can have character, and a bit of nature never hurts.


Wall No.6

Like mailboxes, house numbers don’t need to be mundane. I liked the stencil approach and the how the rust only improved the original idea.


Wall No.5

This the last wall mural I will shoot without taking greater care to save the name of the artist. However, I do think my composition does justice to a piece of the whole.


Wall No.4

Walls sometime lend themselves to a minimalist approach and a clear concise message. Out of context it’s almost abstract art. A bit like Marcel Duchamp’s art.


Wall No.3

I think this is a very clever element to add to an otherwise boring bit of brutal cement. In my treatment I have brought out the design a bit more than is visible on the average day.


Wall No.2

Walls can be turned into art, and outdoor wall murals are increasingly popular. I would cite the artist’s name but I took this some time back and no longer have it. This is only a piece of the whole and in black and white I think it makes a different and interesting impression.


Walls

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

When you look around you with an eye for photography, you notice things you might not otherwise notice. This week’s photographs are of walls. Walls are interesting as they age; they get changed, painted over and can become subjects of good photographs. In this case the renovation of the wall and shadows, etc. make for a minimalist canvass.


Imagination-6

Someone went and ruined the Monty Hall trick, made a fool of the shell game, in short what were they thinking?


Imagination-4

Is it a backdoor, a side door or the entrance to a house? There is something odd here that tests my modest understanding of modern architecture.


Harsh

It appears to be too expensive to avoid harsh brutal architecture these days. I am seeing more and more modern brutal architecture. At least in this view there is mix of media (steel and concrete), a window or two would have been nice.

Sometimes the shadows catch your eye. I find it takes more than one shot to get the framing right and even then I fiddle with the crop to capture the idea. Often I will bracket exposures and use Photoshop’s HDR function to meld the results, giving me even more latitude.


Distortion (Two Photographs)

There are three types of distortion in photography that I think are of interest: lenses often have distortion (there is usually an in camera or post-processing fix that can easily be made); whenever we photograph glass there is a high incidence of distortion; and finally there is creative distortion in where you position yourself. You can take advantage of these distortions. These photos, while the focus is on the reflection, also benefit from other distortions of the glass and lens position.
