Thread: No Permanent Address

    No Permanent Address

    No Permanent Address
    No Permanent Address by alquibbs, on Flickr

    It's been raining for the past two days, streets are flooded, school classes were suspended, flights canceled and people from low places were evacuated to higher grounds. So instead of going out, I stayed home and take pictures! And now, I wonder where could the resident of this web fled?

    Willie or Jiro is fine by me.

    Re: No Permanent Address

    I hope you and your family are OK, Annette. Good composition on this one. I like how you positioned the center of the spider web on the lower right focal point. The composition is a bit right heavy but still OK. The colors reminded me of Christmas, I don't know why. I like it. Thanks for sharing.

    Hi Willie! Glad that you liked it, thank you. Perhaps the colors and water droplets which looks like christmas balls made you remind about Christmas...Merry Christmas hehehe.

    Hi Al,

    It almost has a 'christmas-sy' feel to it with those oof 'lights' in right background

    It might be improved by toning down (or cloning out) some of the blown (non-circular) patches on the left background I feel.

    Cheers,

    Hi Sir Dave, thank you for viewing and your suggestion I didn't expect that it would look Christmassy It should be halloween-ish.

    The web is looking a bit tatty so I wonder if the owner-occupier has moved on? Good capture Al. Stay safe and keep dry.

    Hi Al,

    I'm with those who see it as Christmassy. First thing I thought of when I saw it, and it's a very cheerful and warming image too. I guess your spider fled to higher ground .

    Has it stopped raining yet?

    Keep safe,

    Seri

    Hi Keith, thank you for you concern, and I guess the owner is on a holiday break.

    Hey Seri, thank you for your viewing and for the positive comment, it made me smile. I have no idea how it came out like a cheerful image, maybe it has something to do with my mood yesterday and it reflected on the picture.

    Mary... or Lucy... either is fine with me. ;)

    Re: No Permanent Address

    Hi Al! I'm not typically one that smiles when I see spider webs but I did when I opened yours. I'm with all the others... it reminded me of Christmas. The water droplets on the branches made me think an evergreen all bedecked with twinkle lights. The web is very sharp. Nice shot.

    Stay dry and safe...I hope the rain eases up a bit.

    Al,

    I'm a bit late to this party, but I want to share that I really like this image too. Very nice control of the DoF, and the highlights on those water drops are fantastic!

    Hello Mary, like you I'm not a fan of spiders and web, I was taking pictures of the water droplets on the plant beside it when I noticed it and got interested with the droplets of waters around it. I never thought it would come out with a Christmas effect! Anyway thanks for viewing and I'll be safe.

    Hi Hans, thank you very much for viewing and your comment.

    Hello Bill! Glad that you liked it! Water drops are fantastic which looks like glittering Christmas balls? Hahaha thanks!
