I often wish I had a stoop to sit on. A place where I could sit and watch the world go by. When I was abroad I used to find places I could stand or sit a while and get great shots. Staying in one place long enough you could become almost invisible. But not in our more modern cities where everyone is suspicious, cautious and wary, the guy on the stoop stands out.


Attention

There are three things to note here:

  1. It’s great when animals give you a look
  2. Not all farms appreciate photographers
  3. In any group of animals, some will be more attentive than others

From a distance I saw this tattered, flaky old window and the shapes of things inside. If it drew my attention, I thought that perhaps it might equally engage the interest of others. (Isn’t that what photography is all about?)

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.

 


Wall Flowers (Three Photographs)

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.
