Eight of my favorites reflections, mostly shot in 2011. I feel the series was complete around the end of summer, but I keep on shooting those upside down reflections. I just love it.
They’re all untouched, except the 5th one (but it’s still a very light cropping). I shoot it as I frame it, cropped a lot, they wouldn’t make sense. It’s about seeing the reality the other way round on purpose. It’s not about shooting blind before cropping a lot.
Anyway, it’s fun trying because it’s challenging to frame something upside down while you focus “upside up” - you have to try to see what I mean.
For those who wonder, there’s not much editing in it either, with strong contrast lenses, a bit of saturation, the occasional weirdness of the Leica M8 sensor and you’re good to go.
I post those eight because they work well together. I avoided posting wide and b&w ones for the sake of consistency. May be I’ll post a b&w one soon.
I don’t have a lot of time right now, but I have lots of stuff to post and write about. I was foolish enough to buy a M Monochrom and boy it’s quite a body. Not for everyone, for sure, but quite spectacular, imho. I’ll post a quick hands on and a few pics this week. For those who don’t work this week-end, enjoy. For those who work, like me: courage! :-)
Just that. Tree.
Photo taken on the Arauco Hospital. There was a small rain and the position was perfect. If i only had a good camera on that moment…
A Warm Place under a rainy night.
I always walk from the institute to my apartment listening music for clean my mind and for reflect about “How was the day”. Walk. Something than the rest of the people doesn’t do so much.
That night i was listening “The Downward Spiral” and it was raining in the afternoon. As long as it was getting late and the tracks are keep making “noise” on my headphones, it get’s dark when the song “A Warm Place” starts to sound. I stoped walking and i started to pay attention to the instrumental. Some kind of “joy” run throw my body, and i go to the middle of the street and i told myself “must take photo”.
This was the result.
