Heart Brat by Karl Leck

About the Image(s)

'Heartbeat' is a photograph of the painted iron head of the bed where I sleep. The morning light has created soft shadows. It needed an interest point so I hung a red earring at the upper right 1/3 point. The earring's flare and overall softness from the long exposure create a feeling of pulsing movement. Do the four curves of the bed frame suggest four heart chambers or the curving ironwork suggest arteries? Is it a cardiology patient's imaginings? Made with a Nikon Z7 with Nikkor S 24-70 mm f/4 lens at 24mm, ISO 64, f/22, 0.5 second handheld.

Yes, the shadows and wires suggest heart shapes, and the shadows an echo which makes up the beat! I love the focal point of the red earring. Hmmm...earrings are something I collect and will consider as potential subjects. How fun. I love the light. Well exposed and captured!   Posted: 10/11/2021 17:12:56
