Shadow Shots

I love lines and angles. And I love old weathered wood and rusty rails.

This shot gave me both.



Please visit SHADOW SHOTS

Hope you have a good Sunday.

This is really opening my eyes to all the possibilities when taking photos...

Dianne said...

rambling - all the different photo projects have done so much to inspire me to look at things differently
it's great fun
your photos are always wonderful. your love for nature comes thru :)

Sweet Repose said...

Me too...something about the look and feel of old wood that really turns me on...course these days, it doesn't take much...right. Boy, Tracy has really turned us all on with our quest for shadow, but what a blast and what a fun group we have all become, aye.

Hot Fudge said...

Timber and metal make such a wonderful combination. Add an artistic shadow and you have a beautiful composition. Well done!

Gallery Juana said...

Wow, I really like this one! Love the colors and textures. Amazing focus from bottom to top. I need to learn how to do that:)

FCP said...

Yes! Wonderful lines, angles, light and shadow,
Faye

Dianne said...

sweet - you made me laugh, doesn't take much indeed

hot fudge - thank you :)

gallery - thanks!! I liked the mossy green on the side of the wood beams.
I take so many shots to get one I think is worth, it's all a process :)

Lisa B. said...

Nice shot!

Gretchen said...

Really like it! Once I'm back from the hospital and on my feet, I might have to start playing this meme, too. :)

Paz said...

Cool shadow shot!

Alissa Nicolau said...

I love the strength of this shot.

Pagan Sphinx said...

Excellent! It's interesting how our creative eye can have its preferences for photography. I have a thing for archetecture with columns and walls and railings.

tt said...

Old rusty metal is one of my favs...along with weathered wood. I just know there's a story within it all...and I want to know what it is. Besides standing the test of time, it looks better the worse it gets....I want to be remembered as a piece of rusty metal or weathered wood....looking used up but also looking like I have a story to tell. ;)

Faye Pekas said...

and I love shadows so there's something for everyone here :)

Greyscale Territory said...

Lovely mix of subtle textures and light and shade! Delightful!

M.Kate said...

I love lines too!! and these are great, hope you are having a good week :D

thepoetryman said...

Beautiful. Such a nice shot that my eye saw it continuing beyond the edges. Thank you.

Dianne said...

lisa b - thank you :)

gretchen - speedy recovery!

paz - thanks :)

alissa - oh thanks, I thought it was strong as well, all that wood and rock and earth and sea with such solid shadows. I find it calming to look at

pagan - I love when I look at a scene or an object and I can already see the photograph

tt - you could never look used up, you're way too juicy. I like old weathered things for the character they portray and yes, the stories they can tell

faye - cool! thanks :)
shadows fascinate me.

greyscale - thank you!! I appreciate that so much.

m.kate - thank you, there's just something about the infinite possiblity of lines :)
have a great week

poetryman - oh I like that you felt that/saw that - that makes me happy. a photo is like a song to me, I want everyone to enjoy

Patti said...

Beautiful!I love lines and angles too, and often find myself taking pics of them.

Mama Zen said...

That is a really cool shot!

Dianne said...

patti - there's something clean and crisp about long lines and then there's something abstract about angles so it satisfies both sides of my head ;)

mama zen - thank you!! :)

CrystalChick said...

This is a great picture! I was just looking thru a photography book today and I think this shot was in there! No, well, okay... it should be then. :)

Dianne said...

cryatalchick - you kill me and I love ya!! I'd die of one of my photos ever made it beyond blog land. Hell before I blogged my photos were so lonely. It's odd but none of my family or friends are into photography unless it's photos of them :)

Drowsey Monkey said...

That is a very cool photo.

Dianne said...

drowsey - thanks :)

Patti said...

Wow! Your head is both clean and crisp AND abstract??

Impressive. :-D

Dianne said...

patti - that's why I'm nuts!! ;)

Patti said...

Cashew, anyone?

Dianne said...

LOL patti ;)

Mojo said...

Oh really like this a lot!

Wonder what it would look like in B&W or sepia... (Are you thinking what I'm thinking?)

Wonderful lighting and composition in any palette though!

Dianne said...

mojo - thanks so much!!
maybe I'll try it in sepia
I did post a similar shot in B&W on the 'world in black and white' blog a while back.

Raven said...

I just love light and shadow and this is a beautiful shot. Nicely done.

Olga said...

Great shot: very clear and linear.

Dianne said...

raven - thanks!! I liked the sense of going on forever

olga - thank you!!

Ali said...

Old weathered wood does have such a lovely appeal to me too! Great shot Dianne!

Dianne said...
