Like many cities there is a lot of road work going on and people are making the most of it when not losing their temper. I found this flower against a fence separating the pedestrians from the massive pit that was once a major road.

The camera and computer add sharpening, we can add more when we edit and the photo gets sharpened once more when it leaves the post processing software. Too much of it leads to halos or white outlines around objects. Three solutions: do no sharpening or do less of it, paint the outlines away or follow some of the more complicated  tutorials on the web. I usually go back and try minimizing the sharpening but I will paint away outlines if all else fails. Fortunately these photos had no unusual problems.

I liked the background and the cascade. It’s a story told in three parts – urban, natural and artistic, almost abstract. The everyday contrast and often remarkable sights one finds deep in the city, need to be cut out by the photographer. Moments in time immortalized for the edification of others.


On The Edge (Two Photographs)

I call this on the edge, but frankly it still amazes me to live in a large city and be so close to pristine nature. Sure the city has to some extent integrated nature into the city itself, but concrete paths are not natural. The beautiful nature reserves just minutes away are much better.


Patterns and Perspectives (Two Photographs)

You often read about looking for patterns when people talk about ideas on what to shoot. This is a straight on photo but because of the way I was standing the perspective appears slightly off. Add to this a semblance of a pattern and an audience could be forgiven for looking twice at this type of scene.

What’s important to me in photography is taking photographs I like, passing along ideas, tips etc. I am constantly trying new things in the field and in post-processing. I have no expectation that everything will work, or that they will have an appreciative audience. Success is measured in many ways and that is something I bear in mind in all my endeavours.

From my days working with professional photographers in my teens I realized what made a pro a pro was their ability to describe what the photograph would look like before they took it and guarantee the results.

Envisioning the final result is an important step in my work. Though I will admit that it sometimes does not work quite the way I hoped.
