Just When We Thought it was Safe……..

After discussing the “Contest Trap” in previous posts….. of course I have just entered another contest for the Denver Architecture Foundation, sponsors of Doors Open Denver.  My interests in the contest was two-fold:  I’m a member of DAF and the co-sponsor Colorado Photographic Arts Center (aka CPAC, and unfortunate acronym): I love photographing Architecture…….Also it was open to any architecture within the Denver City limits, no stated time limit.  So although the Clock Tower was taken at a DAF Open House, none of the images are from the actual Doors Open Denver Event.

I tried to avoid cliched images….Did I Succeed?

My Expectation is that I will again fall into the “Special Merit Category” which means, OK but not our style……..

Doors From Evans School

I like shooting doors through doors and windows, etc.  And I think I’m going to post this on Thursday Doors Too.

IR at Mission Santa Barbara

Mission_Santa_Barbara_UR

Digital IR @ Mission Santa Barbara.  I saw these four blooming Century Plants and though they would make a nice IR Study.  Now that they have bloomed, they will die.  But look at the image on the left (below), they already have some baby plants started.  I’d estimate about 10 years old from the size.  So it will be a while before they bloom.  We won’t be here to see it.

A Different Perspective on Pinholes

Inspired by an Article “Handheld”  I’ve finally tried out the pinhole in motion technique:

If you look at the ‘Diana Pinhole Box‘ it seems to be suggesting this approach, or at least a less traditional take on pinholes.  So I will continue to experiments………
