It has been a trying week, with a broken computer. I've been without it for 9 days ggrrrr. Luckily I had access to another computer and Photoshop, and was able to produce an image for this week. It was raining and the car was sitting ready to go, when I noticed the rain drops on the wind screen. An urgent scramble for the camera and later a session with the threshold slider. The horizontal lines are the heating elements in the glass.
This image attached is the first one I’ve been happy with after the extreme Black and White treatment. I’ve tried others, but they have been rather ho-hum. It is the chain and its shadow on the side of the blind in the living room, on the white window surround. It was very pleasing to finally make one I like.
It rained overnight, and the tiles were wet this morning. The sun was low and strong from the east. I liked the way the sun hit the wall at the bottom of our garden, but how to make that into something interesting was the question. We have always called the slot in the wall the “Arrow Slot”. The cat nip in the garden below gives it more of a sense of place, I think.
This week’s image was taken in Waikanae on the way to Rotorua. We stayed in a B&B on the beach and slept to the sound of gentle waves, through the open window. I woke early and watched the sun hitting the top of Kapiti Island. It only took minutes for the sun to reach the sea. I’d like to say that the sun was casting the glow on the pillows in the image, but actually it was the bedside light! The sun would have sounded much better!
Each week I'll publish a new image as part of a joint Project 52, with my friend in the USA. We both make an image every week, and send them to each other. We are now in the 2nd year of this project. We find it challenging, stimulating and fun. Life should be fun.
