I am looking through some fairly recent images and found the Clinton images which I want to share. There is a visual beauty in the older buildings on the main street, a historical echo in the US flag and Confederate memorial stylus with the intense sky in the background. The side streets and alleys are always have interesting images.
Downtown Greenville is a great place to stroll and has a “big city” feel to it.
The backs and sides of old commercial buildings frequently contain visual treaures.
There is no such thing as a boring street wander.
When I wander around any downtown, I look for things That move me in some unexplainable way and in some cases rework the original image.
There is something about cities and maybe especially smaller cities that I find fascinating with a sort of dark mystery and painterly atmosphere.
Lunenburg has an active boat yard life with new boats being built and others being repaired. What a fun place!
A few years ago we made a trip to San Francisco and I like to revisit that trip and look at the images. I always manage to find a few that I finally figured out how to make do what I wanted them to do for me. I also feel that there is a relationship between these three.There will be more to come.
I am still taken by our view out the hotel window on our NYC trip They view is always subtly changing and when the curtain is close some light peaks through.
After taking a photograph through the window (again),The view out the window seems to have lots of variations in light from specular highlights and numerous gradations from grey to black. Across the street was a fitness center where a few hardy souls were on the machines. we walked down the street to a bar and soaked up the local color in the bar.
On our previous trip to NYCt our hotel window faced an air shaft, not much with which to work. The night and day views were very satisfying to see with the forms of the buildings and lights during the night.and the details and shapes during the day.
The first three images are NYC spaces with interesting mirrors, movement and activities.The forth image is from Owings, SC in back of an abandoned commercial building. It has a feeling of calmness and shows a quit beauty
If I have not appreciated what I see when I am at a place, my pictures always inform my appreciate of that place. I find colors, shapes and can imagine stories from that place when I work on my photographs. Grab your camera and go.
