The night changes things when the lights go on and people go out.
The afternoon light in the fall on a blue sky day is so pure for me and makes great shadows.It helps capture the landscape and buildings.
Fall in the Upstate of SC is great and the Paris Mountain State Park is a gem of an example. The combination of great colors and their reflections in the pond are perfect.
Fall is a special time of the year with its intense colors and the reminders of the passing of a year with all the resonances of that event.
I saw some things on the way to the Gunter Theater that I was compelled to photograph. When I looked at them in Photoshop I realized that they worked for me as well in color as black and white, or, maybe, the other way around. In both images, the color has a certain interest for the color itself and the black and white brings out the patterning and rhythms of the images.
We had a few foggy mornings in Lunenburg and the surrounding countryside which made for really atmospheric pictures. I suspect that lobstermen could do without the fog during lobstering season.
This set of images satisfies my need to produce images that are formal and open to any interpretation or imaginings that I or any other viewer wishes to place on them.
Here are images that while very different from each other are very similar and I am not sure why, it is just something I feel. Maybe it is the parallel lines running from top to bottom, maybe it is the colors, maybe, maybe, maybe. That is one is so great about photography and any other art form.
I always find things to photograph without leaving our house. This time it is the bathroom curtains and red exercise gizmo hanging on a door.
