Love the 3 photo's here Micheal . Only 1 and 2 are for your photo book about clear lines and strong geometrical compositions as you have made a lot before. Wish you a good week.
Can really sense what the cold, wet, slippery surface of the metal railings would be to the touch in the first two - Nicely exposed and composed images. Lovely sharp image of the lonely seagull against the backdrop of the (George Washington?) bridge in the background - effective use of depth-of-field and subtle coloration, too.
I just love the way you framed these, and your earlier shots. You call them trivialities and turn them into works of art. Only just found your blog, but I will follow from now on.
Nice ways to register the influence of water on metal. The gull probably did not meet many human beings that day except for you... :-)
Catching up on your blog... The first two really are perfect examples of your art. Using the man made objects of your surroundings, you have given a true sense of the less than Christmasy winter season. The final shot is a sellable image to hang on any wall... nice image, technically well taken and processed.
