Yesterday's image was forgotten. What a way to start on my resolutions, but I'm not beating myself up for failng. I'll just restart my resolution each day. Today's was taken with my Samsung Jack using the negative and flourescent options.
Same fish bones taken with a Sanyo point and shoot. This little camera does a great job! Am amazed at what it can produce.
Black and white photo of the neighboring parking lot. The bulb in the outside lamp has been flickering on and off, calling for me to change it. I had to enlarge the photo, taken with my cell, which distorted the view. But Emmaline and I both had the same reaction....the lamp looked like the moon over a city. Used the Craquelure function in the Filter menu with a little more blur.
Enlarged black and white, distorting the image. Like the blur.
Landscaping for apartments or other publicly shared spaces can be ugly. Beautifully manicured grounds are sacrificed for Inexpensive shrubbery to fill spaces. No doubt that the bush in the photo below serves a cheap purpose. But in the negative exposure...on the inside of the bush where the secret dreams are kept safe from laughing jeers...are violets screaming for attention. I'm pretty too, it says!
I liked how this one turned out in the frame. The wall and the stones seem to evenly take up their halves of the photo. The contrast of the materials. The colors. The slight perspective change. Pretty cool...I think.
This photo reminds me of two things. The first is this story I think I read when I was a young teen. I believed it had something to do with ghosts and a certain location in Europe someplace. I don't recall the details just the important fact. This person seemed to travel through time, though briefly, walking down this stretch of cobblestone. The other is the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. I want to write the secrets of my soul upon promising pieces of paper and stuff the crevices.
I almost named this one Maya for her story. The tease of a tree and the sky. The bars are from a fence that lines the property between my apartment complex and the neighboring one. The larger beam in left center is part of the support system for the second floor apartments. When I walk upstairs to my apartment, I always think about their strength. In this photo though, I hope neither of those utilitarian uses are suggested. They make excellent walls for my cage.
Negative shot of this bank near my apartment complex. The building is rather plain and non-specific amongst the skyline. But as a negative, I find the building more mysterious and inviting with many more tales to tell. Jekyll and Hyde.
