Magical Skies

When the lakes are calm, they become mirrors, reflecting the real world above, creating magical effects to dazzle the eye and mind.

Setting My Sights

While enjoying another artist’s work, I couldn’t help but notice the alignment of the two structures.

Pt. 5, Parting shot

Nice clean lines, an almost cathedral like effect.  Lines drawing the eye up and over.  I came, I saw, I crossed.  I am satisfied with the journey.

Pt. 4, Breaking Rules

When I started working with this image, I almost passed it by.  But, something about it kept calling me back.  I realized that it breaks some of the traditional rules I’ve learned in photography.  It’s heavily weighted to one side, making it awkward and out of balance.  It sort of follows the rules of thirds, maybe.  But the texture of the concrete is intriguing and adds its own value to the composition.  Compared to the metal support moving to the right, the concrete actually appears soft.  The metal erupting out of the concrete is well defined and rigid, and giving a sense of launching into space.  But, that’s just my interpretation, you may see it very differently.

Pt. 3, Swerves and Curves

Line, shape, texture, leading lines, geometry, it’s all here!  Hard for me to say which version I like best, they both work.  Perhaps there’s a bit more drama in the black and white image, and the lines seem a bit more pronounced.  If I were to frame one, it would be the B&W version.
