A Snail Shell on A Tree Trunk

Today’s photo is rich in texture and contrast. A white snail shell I placed on a tree trunk with darker tones.

I like it a lot even though it doesn’t mean anything. I like the contrast between the fluid spiral line and the sharp and broken texture of the trunk suface. It looks like a photo that I can happily print, frame and hang on the wall. So I guess I’ll do that!

Speaking of printing photos, are you the kind of person who prefers prints or is satisfied with having the pictures on your computer or your phone? snail_shell

Picks From Feb. 1st 2017 Part 1: Textures

I took a walk in town with my camera two days ago, took a lot of shots. I spent yesterday processing most of them and now I’m ready to post them.

For this first collection, I picked all the photos that include any kind of texture in them.

I enjoy taking pictures of tree trunks. I love that no matter how many times I take pictures of the same tree, the texture almost always looks different within the frame.

These photos show one side of the same tree trunk. you can already see that; they’re not that different; but they are different in the way the texture conjures images in my head. I find that very interesting and enjoyable.

So I hope you liked the high-contrast textures. I’m not very into it but I never shy away from any subject that has photographic potential.

Next part will be Green & Blue.

[Journal] Impromptu post 12/01/17

Back to wordpress after a long absence.

I’m sort of lost in finding my way through both the material world and the virtual. I have lost sight of what’s outside the walls. I can only see the ghosts of things now and their fleeting interval of existence.

I indulge myself in my arts feeding off of this negative state. Trying to determine the path through color tones and language nuances even if most of the time they betray me.

I end up fading into a self I never knew before.
