I am looking through lots of images to try and delete files and get back some space and came across some rust px that I like and want to share.
Alice always takes me to events with people and things to photograph including Walter Turpening, a great weaver/furniture-maker. The vendor on the phone was priceless, everyone is hooked up, maybe and the items that first caught my eye are things I want to share first, meaning there is more to come.
Today I decided to get off my duff and go out into the yard where the wetness, fog and leaves all made for an intense color and shape experience. Foggy or cloudy, dreary days make for bright, intense colors almost as if it had a built-in polarizing filter with an additional bit of saturation. You might enjoy grabbing your camera, putting on your Wellies and go shooting.
Bidding Chi good-bye, we got on the tender out to the cruise boat, Saint Laurent while on the way out I got some building px, a large bumper, and some building photos.
I wandered around the boat to shoot some detail shots and a shot through our cabin window, including Alice’s identification hat and the lily in the lounge.
We set sail in the evening.
A friend of mine told us about the Antique Bikes on Main in Chesnee, SC so today we went and other than the day getting extremely warm and humid we had a great day. Here were some of the highlights for me. The vendors had all sort of stuff for sale, the bikes were great and the American flag waving over the John Deere tractor is a classic. I will probably blog some of the images from today.
I am still going back a bit in my files and finding new things to see. The first image is from the salon room of the American Queen steamboat which we took down the Mississippi and the second two are detail images I saw while wandering around New Orleans. The salon light from the window suffered beautifully through the room. The gate with the chain and lock in the foreground and the inviting greenery in the background was irresistible and the red arrow connecting the manhole cover with the diamond patterned step way was wonderfully thought provoking for me with color, pattern and suggested meaning.
I am still working on reviewing older work and deleting duplicate files and images that I do not like anymore but I always come on things that still work for me and I would like to share them. I have always been attracted to doors,hooks, the occasional farm tool and textures. When these things come together in one frame, I love it.
