The Wall

This is a close up shot of the wall that runs around the entire courtyard in the center of town. It is about two and a half feet tall, and keeps my wild boys from running too close to the road while I’m shooting the buildings and flowers in the courtyard. Below it, I posted a photo I took of part of the yard to help with some perspective.

Hoping to do some shooting this afternoon while the older two are at their music lessons. Everything is really starting to green up around here quite nicely. I’ll be taking the infrared film out of the fridge soon for an afternoon photo shoot.

It would be nice to see shots of your two doing their music lessons...

Love the shot at the top.

That first image is really interesting...especially the composition and tones. It reminds me of a wall from a haunted house. Regards, Brent

I love the DOF in the first image and the tree in the background. Nice!

Comparing the number of courses of brick in each shot tells me that you really got close to the ground to make the first, wall-only image - ah, dedication :-) Love that first image. And we get to see some IR work soon, too? Exciting!

Hi Micki, I am loving the top shot. Don't know just keep on liking with every look, the bottom one is alrighttt....but I love the top image.

Good use of DOF and love the framing and the fact you just left a bit on the top open.

Good shot bro.

Thanks for you visit to my blog.
And I won't nag you as I don't care if someone takes digital photos or still uses film. The photo counts, as far as I'm concerned. I know two friends who do both, but have switched back to film just recently. Now I like this wall. It is very minimalistic, but a very warm photo. Love the moss. And indeed good use of dof.

That's a great picture. I'm glad you kept it dark. I would have fallen to the temptation to overexpose this kind of shot. Your exposure is perfect.

This wall look so old ! i like the texture. For the other one, the white is very shiny, i have the feeling of wisdom seeing this building

Great wall shot--many textures and colors amid the repeating forms. I thought it was much higher, so the 2nd shot helped to make sense of what I was seeing.
