Photography of Texture

Happy New Year – 2008!

Well, it’s 2008! How was it…ah, I mean 2007? Time for a postmortem, or shall we just let 2007 be? I am so, so positive that 2008 is already great – and it rhymes too! So it’s got to be great!

Just wanting to wish all my readers and visitors to my Photo-Journals, a VERY Happy and Prosperous New Years – Make it Great because no one else will for you! Right!

OK then…Now the photo below (if it shows up…LOLOL). Just as in the previous entry, I said, “give shooting in the rain a try”…so, “give shooting at nighttime a try too.” What’s the worst that can happen? Well, OK, let’s back up the truck…lots could happen, so bring someone you trust to “Watch Yer 6!” That will allow you to concentrate on photographing.

Can You Feel It?, Edit C

The camera is superior to the eye, and the photograph can, and ideally should, portray the world more graphic than reality itself.” Andreas Feininger (1906 – 1999)

 Can You Feel It?, Edit C, originally uploaded by fine-grain.

“Can You Feel It” is obviously about texture. The original is quite colorful and nice, but I wanted you to “feel” the photograph by creating this version, in this way. The rough textured wall, the smooth metal on the grille, the sharp barbed wire on the water pipe, the battered, gravel, asphalt road in front of the door. So…”can you feel it?”
