Shadow and Lamp - Day 195

ISO 400, f/8.0, 1/1500th sec

 Today's image was found in downtown Putnam. I like how the shadow and the lamp worked well together, and the brick wall has great texture and wonderful repeating lines. I also placed the lamp in the upper third of the photo to help the composition. This is my 45th architecture image to date.

 On a quick side note, going forward I will only be using one camera and one lens. The camera will be my Canon T7, and it will be paired with a Canon 28-135mm lens. There are several reasons I have decided to do this and I will share them in the up coming weeks.

Weathered Stump - Day 194

ISO 100, f/8.0, 1/60th sec

 I found this scene while walking around in a rural area in Putnam. I love finding subjects like this that express one of my rules that guide me - "Details create the big picture". There is so much to see in the image from the textures in the stump to the scattered pine needle and then the blueberry bush framing the stump. This is my 15th closeup image I have posted to date.

Lines and Shadows - Day 193

ISO 160, f/5.6, 1/1000th

 If you look around, you and at any time of the day you can find something to photograph. In the case of this image, it was later in the afternoon and the corner of the building caught my eye. I like the leading lines and how the left side of the school falls off into the shadows. This is the 44th architecture image I have posted to date.

A Table for Two - Day 192

ISO 1600, f/8.0, 1/30th sec

 This table for two was found in a quiet garden space behind the library in Sprague. Unless you get out and walk around an area you never know what you might find as was the case in this scene. I am finding myself drawn more often lately to working images like this one. This makes the 4th small town street scene I have posted.

Dark Window - Day 191

ISO 200, f/11, 1/60th sec

 This window on the old Windham Inn is just what I enjoy about shooting small town architecture. I bumped up the contrast a bit and increased the overall structure to give it a gritty street scene effect. I work in Luminar Neo than move the image to Silver EFex Pro to convert it to B&W. This is the 43rd architecture image I have posted to the blog so far.
