Photo365 – Day 212 – Abstract window

A view through the distorted window glass. I’ve been busy all day decorating so no time for photos. One of the problems with this photo365 daily photo project. So it’s a quick snap on the iPhone.

Photo365 – Day 204 – shadowman

A self portrait of sorts. I was in a room and noticed a reflection from a mirror hitting the wall and creating a rainbow shaped letter H. I took a few pics of that and spotted that the actual window light was also strong and part of my shadow was in the frame so I repositioned myself and balanced the shot creating this result.

Photo365 – Day 139 – No Parking

I went over to Sheffield today to do some work with the Tamron 18-270mm lens. While I was out I spotted this interesting arrangement. Nothing was moved, all as found.

The shot is part of my photo365 project where I take a photo each day for 365 days. So far so good!

Photo365 – Day 83 – Through the door

was trying different lens combinations on a Nikon D700. I was using an unusual adaptor that used to be made by BPM that allows a male and female mount to be attached back to back. With the adaptor and suitable mounts you can attach any lens to any body. I tried enlarging lenses using a Leica 39mm adaptor, then screw thread lenses using an M42 adaptor, then an old Pentax 135mm f/3.5 lens using a K mount. It was at this point that I took the photo that will be today’s photo365 picture.

It’s a really simple shot but I like the way the light hits the surfaces creating a really striking abstract. It’s a door frame with the light on the edge( the vertical line), and in the background is an out of focus open curtain. and window. This was the first shot I took and lead me to do a series of abstracts all featuring simple designs of interiors, all abstract and all bold like this.

It’s out of the camera with no editing, full frame, no exposure adjustments, no colour change.

Photo365 – Day 46 – Window

It’s been raining all day and making those small pattering sounds on the window. So here’s my window looking out. Focus is on the reflections of the background tree in the drops. A wide aperture was used to make the tree branches totally out of focus and abstract in look.
