Another Photography Thread



Recommended Posts

As a complement to Kathleen's excellent natural world thread, I offer another for pictures that don't quite fit into the "natural" box, but are interesting enough to us to want to share. I'll start with a couple from a recent trip to China:

Beautiful photos from China, jon!

 

I'd like to add something a little eerie, perhaps, but a photo I never dreamed I'd have the opportunity to take, but I did. It is the chair in which, reportedly, Casanova died, in his apartments in the Wallenstein Palace in Duchcov, Czech Republic.

I will visit this thread daily and enjoy the marvelous sights,. jon, thank you for creating this thread as a place where we may share the interesting things are eyes behold which fall outside the natural realm.

 

Now as we survey our world and capture images with our cameras, we may ask ourselves, natural or man's handiwork? I believe we need to reflect on the wonders of both.

 

 

Your first photo is quite interesting. I really like it. The rooftop sculpture with the bell beneath gives an appearance of being balanced there.

 

 

This is the perfect thread in which to share my scaffolding picture. This building, in downtown Chicago, was top-to-bottom covered with scaffolding. I stared at it a good while, intrigued by the geometric maze, all the lines and angles.

These are a few of my 12 yr old daughter's work ...

Halifax, Nova Scotia .... She was intrigued by the way the reflections mixed on the glass

This is on my FIL's farm... basically a study in time she said.... the old stone wash house with an old Case tractor parked out back...

She had me turn it into a sepia tone to do the time study justice...

To infinity and beyond, what a great photo, would be great photo for a AAA brochure, travel New Mexico ad, or a car commercial, I really like this perspective.

Thanks, Spiv & Sonia. We do seem to have been placed in a less-traveled area.

 

I've been doing some edits & crops, so here are a couple more. Tell me what you think.
