Another month gone; a slow photography month at that. Only two outings this month and a couple of sunrise/sunset opps.
June is looking better and the backyard overhaul will hopefully soon be complete. Here is a quick peak – not quite done yet. This has been under construction since 3/12/2012.
Here are my favorite May images converted to black & white with Silver Efex Pro 2.
There was just something about this rolling hill and the clouds – lots of texture and contrast.
Here again, the textures and contrast set off the barn in the pasture with trees and clouds as a great natural backdrop.
This was one of those shots that I spotted at about 40 mph, backed up and captured. The way the light was coming in and shinning on those windows in the back of an old Hamms beer truck was captivating; not to mention the variety of textures – tarp, glass, metal, straw and wood all mashed up together.
The lighting was harsh, but still workable on our outing with Martin. He is an interesting fellow with a unique photographic approach to capturing images.
The rusty bucket and log just married up two of my favorite elements to photograph.
I’ve been commuting from Red Wing to St. Paul for ten years now; I’ve only just noticed this building top in the last year. I’ll blame my lack of observation on not being fully caffeinated still at this point in my route.
Old wood – love it. All these disheveled places we run into either have doors or windows or both stacked up in some area or room. The crescent moon sun spot on the far wall caught my eye.
I really enjoyed the lighting in this scene. The profound highlights in the tree tops and tin roof; the lingering shadows around the base and right side of the building just brought this all together for me. That single, curious little window facing me just begged the question of what kind of light was pouring into the interior of that building. Had it been a more remote location I have been able to investigate
There you have it – short and sweet – May 2012 revisited.
