My image this week was made this morning. Our ensuite bathroom faces east. The clear glass window looks onto a little garden we made into a fernery. It is tucked down beside the house and you can see at the top of the image that there are concrete steps leading from the living level to the lower level. The sun was in the right place when I was getting ready for the day, and I thought it was worth a try. I made 11 images before the sun moved too much and upset the composition, which wasn’t long! I have darkened both sides to keep the eye in the image. The light and dark areas on the blinds are the shadows from a tall punga fern on the left, and the light reflecting back on the wall from the house. The two blue areas at the bottom are two blue pots, which are planted with ferns. I tried several crops, 3x2, and square, but I am liking the 16x9, so tried it as a vertical, and liked that too. Funny that after 52 weeks of square, and nothing else, I am leaning in one direction again. How long it will last is anyone’s guess, but I’m enjoying the look so far.
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.
