Spaceship (Two Photographs)

The black and white is the final product though the colour version has its appeal. The idea for the photo hit me when I was experimenting with a wide-angle lens. Lenses in the 10-35mm range allow for creativity in perspective, angle of view etc. A little known fact is that you can focus quite close with most wide-angle lenses. The standard wide-angle is 24mm, for street photography 35mm. With a 20mm and down the exaggerated optics become more obvious. By the way the photo is of a skylight in a modern building.


Shadows (Two Photographs)

Fall light, harsh angled light creating interesting shadows. I could not resist taking these shots trying to isolate the subject from the world around it (a cross walk and busy sidewalk). XT-3, HDR Pro, Photolemeur, and Tonality CK, just the right mix.


Wall Art (Two Photographs)

If someone created this it would be called art but it’s probably all natural. So much the better, weather generated art. Infrastructure aging not gracefully perhaps but certainly in an interesting way. Just for the record I will give it dignity and call it wall art.


Mailboxes (Three Photographs)

It seems my catalogue has a significant number of photographs of mailboxes. I am not sure why I take so many but very often the boxes have some unique style or special lighting. As I weed through them I will post more.


Little Things (Three Photographs)

We walk past the little things; those things the song says we won’t miss until they’re gone or broken. Urban environments are full of this kind of mechanical sculpture. I may take many similar photographs like this but few survive the cull.


Modern (Two Photographs)

On this blog I have said that I am no fan of the modern glass and concrete towers that increasingly dominate the skyline. This is mostly because looked at straight on there is not much to them. It takes reflections, clouds and a view from a certain angle to make them interesting.
