PoTd - September 20 | Entopy

 Pic-of-The-day - "Entropy".


Have I ever mentioned that I love rust?  well, I do love rust, a lot.  I'm fascinated by any form of entropy. Weathering, rust, decay and aging they are all part of the same process & I love them all. 

Entropy is appealing,  or at least the visual signs of entropy are appealing.  Lots of us are drawn to images & drawn to make images of things that are weathered, rusted & decayed. 


We all know nothing lasts forever & I think that part of the attraction, to see things that demonstrate that idea. 

We spend so much time fighting entropy.  We clean & paint & repair all the time fighting this process. Sometimes it nice to accept decline & enjoy it, even if only in an image. Maybe it reminds us that sometimes, it's OK to let things go & let nature take it's course.

The hardest part of this post was  only picking a few photos to represent entropy. It's so appealing.

PoTd - September 19

Pic-of-The-day - "Orbs".

In the above "orb photos" the green spots are reflections of the candle flame bouncing around inside the camera lens. The situation is exacerbated by the very dark room with only one bright source and the lens aperture being wide open at f1.4. 

The situation is similar to people who go ghost hunting in dark places with very few light sources. Like in these examples the cameras that are straining to get a decent image and they get 'orbs' similar to the ones I got.

I wish there was more too it, but just about every 'orb photo' I've seen is a variation on,1) the above effect or 2) dust close to the lens lit by an on camera flash.

Pic-of-The-day - "Crinkly".

Nature is great at providing lots of shapes & textures for photographers. I've heard that nature doesn't create them specifically for photographers,  but I'm not sure I believe that.

Pic-of-The-day - "Old Bridge"

Machinery on an old railway bridge across an old Welland Canal.  I'm not sure what the machinery was used for,  it doesn't look like a lift bridge, there are some on the current canal, maybe it was a swing bridge that rotated around a center I was more interested in shapes and colours while I was shooting and didn't give much thought to the mechanics until later.

PoTd - September 15 Halloween is Here!

https://www.flickr.com/photos/rumimume/
Pic-of-The-day
OK Halloween isn't actually here, according to most people. There are, however, people that start celebrating early.
I'm sort of one of those people.
Sort of because I won't start decorating for a while, but I'm starting to post Halloween Photos today, mostly because I have so many. Soon I'll be listening to Halloween Audio (Podcasts, Old Time Radio, libravox stuff etc.) and shortly after that It will be time to start watching the stock of Halloween movies & TV we have accumulated.

Long story short.. Halloween is almost here, but I'm starting early.



 

 Pic-of-The-day - "Around the corner".

I was working late one night in late October 2010, listening to ghost stories on my walkman. I was going out to the mail room, came around a dark corner and saw what appeared, for a second to be a child in a costume standing on the edge of the shadows.  It stopped me for a second until I realized it was a doll/decoration. So, I went back to the office to get my camera to see if I could recreate my first impression in a photo.

Pic-of-The-day - "Summer Walk".

A summer afternoon walk with a camera.
When I need more content all I need to do is wander around my neighbourhood.

 If I lucky I end up with a them,  If I'm really lucky I end up with a video. If I not so lucky I get a bunch of unrelated images, still not too bad. On this wander I got the chance  get some nice dappled light at the top of the 180' deep gorge carved by the Niagara river.
