Window to a Dirty Truth

It took me quite a few shots to get this right, I wanted a balance of total black in the shadows and enough clarity to see the texture of the wall. I got one flooded out shot that looks like the tunnel you are supposed to see when you die…I like this one, though, it’s got a depressing air about it, like being trapped in a mineshaft.

I will just do as well as I can. I have been shooting at least every other day, which is way more than I started out with. So, yeah, not going to beat myself up about it too hard.

Day 2: Picture a Day Silhouettes

I love painting and photographing silhouettes- something about the clean lines really attracts my eye and interest. It’s tough to get a backlit exposure correct- and I usually end up doing manual focus if there’s something thin and delicate in the foreground like this scrollwork in our front door.

I liked both of these a lot, especially the second one because of the focus on the middle ground red leaves. Great lines and fun color.
