About the Image(s)

I did a photo shoot while taking a walk. I concentrated on the patterns I saw on the asphalt pavement with the curbs, land, and any street debris. I'm making a collection of these. Not sure why they appeal to me. I guess I like the graphic designs. I also like the not-so-perfect world they represent. I chose this image from my iPhone's photo shoot once I returned home and examined them, as per this month's assignment. Maybe it will remind you of the messy? streets near you. This is a color image. I didn't change it to black and white. Interesting, huh! What happened to the color in my environment? Green grass was out of sight!

That's very interesting description on what your doing. I forgot what it's called. People that do architectural photography look for the right angles, straight lines. Most are B&W. I felt you're almost doing it at a smaller level and a great idea.   Posted: 05/14/2022 22:26:19

Carole, patterns are always interesting to photograph. I was told once that a good graphic design can be rotated 90 degrees each way and will look good in every shot. Your design is made up of triangles and rectangles. The textured areas add depth to the image. Monochrome is a perfect choice because all the tones from black to white blend well.   Posted: 05/16/2022 09:22:08

Love the graphic lines and angles, the various textures. Exposure perfect. The contrast of the nearly new white line and the crumbling blacktop tells a story.   Posted: 05/18/2022 10:23:18
