On a quick trip to the post office this morning I saw a downed tree trunk and thought it would be perfect for this challenge. The colors have been manipulated with Photoshop filters, bringing out an interesting pattern in the grain.
It’s been awhile since I participated in The Daily Post’s Photo Challenge on WordPress. Each Friday, a new theme is suggested and this week it’s ABSTRACT. Here’s my take.
Muse. What subject keeps you coming back? I guess the one thing that I never tire of photographing is the sky, especially clouds, the sunrise and sunsets. This spectacular sky was shot one evening in June on Fire Island with a Fuji FinePix digital camera.
This week’s challenge asks What does angular mean to you? Well, my first thought went to the bridge going to Robert Moses State Park on Fire Island. I’ve taken many photographs of the bridge and from the bridge, so this was an obvious choice.
I also had a picture I took from our high school, a kind of stairway to heaven. Playing with it a bit in Photoshop, making the building black and white, helps to accentuate the angles.
In this week’s challenge, show us your minimalist photos. Minimalist photography is characterized by a large portion of negative space, a fairly monochromatic color palette with good contrast, and an interesting subject that is able to stand on its own to capture the interest of the viewer.
I took this photo from inside the house looking out. The window shade was drawn and the silhouette of the sweet pea vine that was growing outside caught my eye. This is a negative of that photograph, which I thought would make the image more graphic.
