Wind flapping the canvas spanned across the railing of a balcony.
One day to Christmas eve it was, the light being an early present for the photographer 🙂
As I always say: some days are better than others. Yesterday was particularly good.
Today I have two half/half compositions for you. One, the torn advertising on a lamp mast, is obviously a straight photography, the other, the Image of the Day, is as well, although in that case you simply have to believe me 🙂
There was a lot of glass involved, I was standing in the entrance of a shop, the woman is an advertising poster behind glass, the dark edge in the center is where two sheets of glass meet. I can’t remember the exact configuration. In any case, this is the same shop that brought us “362 – Fashion Victim“.
Along with the third image, the furniture on a balcony, these could all be from my SoFoBoMo book “Urban Dreams II”. Obviously I am not yet done with that series 🙂
The Song of the Day is “Proud Mary” by Tina Turner. In March, when I used “River Deep Mountain High” as a Song of the Day, I bought Tina Turner’s 3 CD “Platinum Collection”. That’s what I’ve linked to. See a fantastic live performance on YouTube.
OK, here’s the missing images of Monday, and then I’ll only have to make one for today and post it 🙂
The second image is from the same window, late in the afternoon. I liked what the shadows and the clouds did.
Actually I really love these images from my study. It’s always the same landscape, but light, clouds and perspective change enough to make it interesting over and again. Who knows, I may end up with a book of those 🙂
The Image of the Day was taken later. The sun had gone down, I tried to sleep a little on a camping bed on the balcony, and suddenly I felt the urge to get the camera and try to make some images from my perspective. Over the years I’ve learned to always follow such impulses, and so I did. Thus: never go to sleep without your camera 🙂
