Tuesdays of Texture – Week 34, 2016

Study in Wood #3

Here is my contribution for Tuesdays of Texture for week 34. A while ago I started a series of Studies in Wood. This is just one of the subjects of that series. This particular specimen can be found in Bryant Park, just behind the new York Public Library. If you are interested, here’s my original post from March.

You’ll find lots of other interesting texture posts over at  DE Monte Y MAR – do head on over to check them out and perhaps even add your own.

Tuesdays of Texture: “Washout”

"Washed Out" - Sand Patterns, Bancroft, Ontario

I saw a post by Norm 2.0 this morning and thought I’d like to play along through this contribution to the ‘Tuesdays of Texture’ stream hosted by Narami at De Monte Y Mar.

Textures are everywhere and I can hardly turn of the desire to document them. The image above appeared in a northern Ontario parking lot after an intense rainstorm. The ‘wash’ had ‘classified’, the sand into distinct layers, based on their size and weight of each grain, creating wonderful patterns, creating an image that looks like an aerial view of rolling desert.

Thursday Doors – August 04, 2016

“Abandoned Church” - Bruce County Road 40
 

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

OK, I’m cheating a bit today. This is a closer view of the door to a church I photographed last week and posted earlier today.

It looks like the doors, and the building, have seen better days and I wish I had spend a bit longer looking around and making some interior shots too. It was not till I started processing the image that I noticed the scuff mark on the door, Indicating the the lock has been removed at some time, allowing the locking bar to swing freely.

It’s pretty amazing what nature can do to unattended buildings. The yellow brick is typical in this area, being made from local clay, it takes on the yellow colour rather than the brick-red many of us are used to. There are many old buildings in the area in excellent condition, but without heat in the winter, the building rapidly declines, as frost gets between the bricks and mortar, splitting them apart. I’ve started looking through the county archives to get a bit of history of this unidentified church.

Thursday Doors – July 21, 2016

McGill University - Faculty Club Doors

This week’s submission to Norm 2.0‘s Thursday Doors.

Thursday Doors is a weekly feature allowing door lovers to come together to admire and share their favourite door photos from around the world.

I’m finding lately that it’s not just the doors, but the reflections in the windows that are quite interesting.

These doors are the entrance to the Faculty Club of Montreal’s McGill University. I had to resort to my iPhone for this image and waited for a while for traffic through the doors to die down. I was not happy with the angle presented to me but there were not a lot of options available to me. The door sits atop a small landing about two meters above street level. Fortunately, I’m tall but I would have prefered a wider shot that allowed me to frame the door completely.

“Baptismal Elements” – St. Patrick’s Cathedral, New York

“Baptismal Elements” - St. Patricks, Cathedral New York

“The Church does not dispense the sacrament of baptism in order to acquire for herself an increase in membership but in order to consecrate a human being to God and to communicate to that person the divine gift of birth from God.”
― Hans Urs von Balthasar

I can’t fully explain what it was that attracted me to this composition. Yet, I find myself processing that very though in this post.

The golden urn and bowl seemed to stand out from other elements around them. The soft, natural light playing on the mottled gray walls further enhanced the image by isolating the table in the foreground.

It’s a simple scene really, and reminds me a bit of the still life paintings in the Dutch Golden Age style, with their bright golden tones and simple depictions of everyday items.

I also thought this composition might make a nice church bulletin cover, celebrating baptism, which is something I used to produce regularly a few years back. The table seems to be ready and waiting, prepared for something to happen.
