Yes, I like this very much, even though everyone else is scratching their heads (or worse) thinking "what the..." I see they let you have windows in the North.
Plexiglass...does not shatter when the petrol bombs go off on a Saturday night. You will note the highly fashionable rendering and Mediterranean blue skies....its grim oop North but fashionably grimI see they let you have windows in the North.
I am having a rather flat period at present. The ideas are not coming so I am filling my time by keeping my hand in with the more traditional subject matter. If it carries on you may see a few puppy dogs and smiling children in the weeks to come. Hell I might even buy a togs vest. Did I just say that....its worse than I thought.but it isn't pushing boundaries
I'm just impressed with how clean the sensor of your camera is. Not a speck in that blue sky.
Can't believe you are in a rut. Look at your post: Maybe you can figure out some Wirefoxian way to make windows not windows. Rain on panes for a play on pain? Photograph every flat thing you can find. Just not the vest!
Hi Steve, I do like that but then again I can see some triangles.
yes, this is how I like it. Very subtle, balanced, abstract and most of all well done! I agree with Donald and Myra, that it immediately shows to be a Wirefoxian photograph.
Well it certainly seems as if I had a more productive day than I first thought. Your very positive comments are hardly justified I fear but they are very welcome nonetheless. I think the problem here for me (apart from being knackered after my first full week in work for a while) is that for this type of image I usually have the image in my head and then go and find (or arrange) a setup that comes closest to my concept. This one was taken off the cuff although my immediate thought was a north England Romeo and Juliet (Gaz and Shaz probably). I do not often like the results of my walkabout efforts so I was fairly pleased with the outcome with this one. I try to avoid walking about aimlessly with a camera dangling round my genitals it does tend to attract the wrong class of folk...dont you know.
I had shot a similar image with the same subject matter before but it had no story behind it just colour and texture
I bought the camera used and it was pretty clean when I got it. There were a couple of bunnies but they disappeared after a few actuations of the sensor shaker do dah. Anyway I hardly ever shoot with an aperture smaller than f/8 so I could have a couple of rusty shopping trolleys and discarded refrigerator on there for all I knowI'm just impressed with how clean the sensor of your camera is. Not a speck in that blue sky.
I have been called a fair few but never actually been one.You know you are on the right track when they start to adjectivize your name.
Rolf Harris?... I'm damned if I can remember his name!
I think you will find that's Annie WalkerInside every disadvantaged (when I were a lad...), down-trodden Northern photographer there's a budding Annie Liebovitz.
I like this one too Steve. The interesting thing about your comment is how you go about it. i.e. you develop a concept and then find an image or set it up. Quiet differnt to mine. I see myself more as an opportunitistic photographer. I see images as I go. The beauty of photography is you can come at it from so many differnt angles.
PS. Kay, there are triangles in the clouds.
Many thanks Peter and 'Fleshpiston' (is that name referring to some aspect of your anatomical prowess? You will have WireVixen all flushed and dreamy eyed).
