Thread: Autumn Captured

    Autumn Captured

    The conditions were gentle enough today to allow these autumn leaves to be captured by the spider webs. I was just disappointed we didn't have any frost to add to the effect

    Yet again, 'seeing' the photograph in the first place is the skill. I can 'see' big things, like tractors etc. But I really have to work harder at seeing the smaller scale opportuntities that are all around me.

    Kay,

    I'm a fan of the one in the comic book and that's about it, but you do have to admit they would make for good photo subjects. Just stay away from the poisonous ones.

    Thank you for your comments. I have to admit I rather like the 3rd one too. I wasn,t going to bother to be honest. Spider webs are pushing my faithful Fisher Price zoom to the limit and I have had no success at all in the past. However, something about the light made me think it might just hack it this time round.

    I dont mind spiders at all in fact guess who has to don his undies over the top of his pants and fly to the rescue if one enters the house. Actually spiders are the least of my worries. If I hear a blood curdling scream I can guarantee a moth has found its way into my youngest daughters bedroom. She is 16 but you get the full drama, tears, refusing to come out of the bathroom, the lot

    I think I like 1 and 3 equally well. They both have energy, but 1 contains more of a suggestion of continued motion for me. I love the shape of the leaf, so like a fish. Photo 1 also made me think of a treble clef and an errant note crashing through a musical score and continuing on its insouciant way, leaving its audience completely charmed. For me, it is less Autumn Captured than Summer Giving Way.
