Triad

Rather like the implied light source of the orange in this. Also always like the triad of blue, orange and red together.

Without meaning to, this ended up looking like the night sky, I think. What do you think? What does this look like to you?

It’s almost the new year. I’m more excited than a kid on Christmas eve waiting to open their presents.

Between the wind and frigid temperatures, this time of year can be hard on one’s skin. Looking through unpublished photos, I couldn’t help but think of the winter’s harsh effect on skin when I spotted these:

Contrasts

Whenever I’m in Copenhagen, I try to pay a visit to the Design Museum. Enough time lapses between my visits that when I return, there’s always something new and different to see. During one of my tours of the museum, there was a dramatic lighting installation of aluminum. Oddly enough, it shared a space with a collection of lacework from the turn of the 19th to 20th century. The contrast of dramatic industrial lighting and understated yet ornate handmade lace was a little surreal. Too bad the light wasn’t good enough to take pictures of the lce

While sorting photos recently, it struck me that I have unwittingly amassed a collection of photos of the letter ‘F.’ Strange, really. Here are a few:

Bruise

Have to admit that the colors in this remind me of the shades of blue and purple one gets from a really bad bruise (think of a real zinger from sliding in baseball, maybe like the one in ‘A League of Their Own‘). Or perhaps a field of lupine.

Another rainy morning makes me think of blue still more despite the warm golds and oranges of the fallen leaves.

There’s something rather pleasing about the geometric shapes of this train hardware. Usually it’s the colors or textures of old machinery that catches my attention but in this case I think it was the shapes.

Cold values

I keep finding myself drawn to blue values and cold palettes without meaning to lately. See what I mean?

Here are a few more from the rainy days last week. Really liking the subtle golds and blues and the warm tones of the rain drops.

The flash of colors in these outakes make me think of blue and yellow macaws flapping by. There used to be an antique store by the harbor with such a parrot who greeted visitors at the door. These days, the shop has moved to Maine and the parrot is now a green wing, but I’m sure it’s still a treasure trove of dusty wonders.

Last week we finally got some much needed rain. So that meant a few things for me: working out inside and spending hours in the rain with my camera. It sounds nuts, I know, but putting up with the wet weather is worth it when you get shots like this:

Looking forward to sharing more of these with you over the next few days. How about you? What have you guys been working on lately?

Lately I’ve been catching myself noticing bits and pieces of numbers and letterforms as I go through my day more often than usual. I’ll be walking to catch a train into town or to meet a friend and a peeling sign will catch my eye, or utility work stencils or some such. If you follow me on Instagram, you may have noticed this habit of mine already.

Here’s a pair of letterforms that caught my eye in a rail yard. If you know your railroad history, the letters should be familiar.

This photo has been resting in a folder on my hard drive longer than I care to admit, even so I still like the contrast of colors and the drip of paint frozen in place.

Pink

I’m not really a pink person, but the contrast of the bright pink against the pale blue and the almost violent abrasions to this surface work for me.
