Thread: Temporary/permanence

  1. #1

    Temporary/permanence

    This year I plan to produce a portfolio of work showing the permanence of nature and the temporary structures of man. Without maintenance manmade structures will fall into ruin. Where as without human intervention the natural world will regenerate and flourish this first photograph is a small illustration of the permanence of nature over the temporary structures built by man.

    Thanks Richard/Colin for the replies and encouragement.
    My plan is to add one photograph a month for the next year to this portfolio of work.
    Iím stating this in public as a way of encouraging myself to fulfil this task

    I look forward to that idea very much. it's a theme close to my heart and something I personally think about a lot. Reclaimed by nature scenes always seem so magical to me. Like seeing the weather,sea , weeds, tree roots etc slowly disintergrate and gradually turn it back into nature.

    Hi John,

    I like your idea of have a project focus on certain theme. I also put a project on my own last year to shoot Sydney Opera House at various conditions and view angles, but somehow it wasn't finished - probably I need more determining for the goal :-)

    I like this picture, especially the bird added some interesting point there.

    First thank you to all that have replied to this thread.
    When I was out the other day checking out a new location for some pano photos I came across this wild cherry tree (I think) that had taken root on top of a fence post. Over the year it has grown down through the post and is now thriving in the strangest of positions giving the impression that the post has come back to life. Come the spring I will return to this location and re-take this shot with more attention to the composition.
