This week my photographs seem to be darker, which is entirely the fault of the weather 😉 sadly I’m not AS pleased with any of them as I was with the Sage in week 1, but that photo was sheer luck rather than skill, and I’m still learning the ropes of my new camera!
POTW April 11th – April 17th: Spring in Black and White
I know I’m weird, but I like it 🙂 I love the patterns! I literally just stood under the intersection of two trees and pointed the camera upwards. I took the colour out and turned the contrast up to full with the bog-standard Microsoft picture editor. Patterns enthrall me, I could spend hours looking at this. I DID spend ages editing it – as well as the natural original and this black and white one, I now have copies in blue, turquoise, green, yellow and pink too 😛
In my never-ending quest to squish as many bridges into one photo as possible…
Four plus a train! Score 🙂 I like the angles of the different bridges based on my perspective at eye level.
These next two are quite similar, and I couldn’t choose between them.
They appeal to me for the same reason – the juxtaposition of the run down factory (a lubricant factory, no less 😉 ) with the natural beauty of the sky: the sun beams in the first one (and who doesn’t like sun beams!) and the pale blues and pinks of the second. And there’s another train in the second one. I seem to have become obsessed with catching trains on the bridges, as well as birds flying around them.
This one isn’t remotely skillful or clever, it just makes me giggle – it looked like the Sage is a monster trying to hide behind the buildings 😀 this is my other obsession of the week: taking pictures of the Sage from odd positions, so it looks alien and a bit magical or menacing, depending on the light. This one is in the menacing camp.
