About the Image(s)

I was on a deck chair of a small ship cruising on the Ohio River. I was fascinated by a braided steel cable to which was attached an “O” ring which held two chains. My photograph was made using a 300mm lens at 1/800, f/5.6 and ISO at 100. The long focal length lens blurred everything in the background while the 5.6 F stop was enough to keep the chain in sharp focus. The color image was okay but the mono version is more striking especially since it emphasizes the cob webs.

Repeating shapes, symmetry, textures - a interesting image from a few pieces of corroded metal.   Posted: 11/04/2020 16:42:10

I see an interesting contrast between the hard, rigid metal elements and the random patterns of the cobwebs. The focal length and processing really make this image pop. Very few people would have seen this shot. Well done!   Posted: 11/12/2020 12:27:53

It is indeed an object that would have piqued ones interest. Spiders are such resourceful creatures aren't they? They can make a home absolutely anywhere! The background is delightful. Nicely spotted.   Posted: 11/15/2020 22:46:41
