What an incredible colour contrasting well against the green backdrop. Only the interior of the flower is sharp and light so it is the focal point. I don’t think this would have worked as well in black and white. Thanks for sharing this with us Ian.May 4, 2015 at 8:22 pm #9625May 4, 2015 at 8:42 pm #9626
I borrowed a book from Crewe library on Saturday called 30 Second Photography by Brian Dilg. On one article about ‘Frames’ he talks about objective photographs being about what’s going on in the frame and subjective photographs are where there’s things happening outside the frame. It’s left to the viewers imagination.
I think this tunnel photo is definately subjective!May 4, 2015 at 8:44 pm #9627
Peter >>> Ha-ha! Yes, you can only imagine what’s going on just round the corner at the end of the passage!May 5, 2015 at 8:25 pm #9638
I decided to seek out some interiors today during my lunch hour and took these to start me off. I need to give it some more thought, but it’s a starting point.May 5, 2015 at 8:34 pm #9639
I like that first one very much, Peter. It’s a great PoV, and the composition in the 8×10 format works really well. And you were, of course, right to wait for a person to walk into the shot near the bottom of the stairs. Very nicely done.May 6, 2015 at 8:09 pm #9640
Thanks Ian. In the first photo I was aware that the space on the top left needed filling and this kind gent walked into my photo right on cue.May 17, 2015 at 5:52 pm #9700May 17, 2015 at 9:07 pm #9702
The title of the last one has to be ‘Comings and Goings’ Ian. I like it!
Why is it that for the first time in ages I get to get out and do some countryside …. and the subject is Interiors??? 🙁May 17, 2015 at 10:03 pm #9710
It does look like a conspiracy!
Seriously, we need items for the front page and news and the Forum could yield some, anyone care to create some stories based on the forum items? This one, the monthly theme is surely good for half a dozen items.

You’ve got some interesting reflections there Ian. I can’t work out the first one was done. Is it a reflection in a mirror window with the picture inside and the pool outside. It makes the viewer look twice to work it out. I quite like the second which looks like the same technique as the first. It composition is more complex and interesting for me, but I would have liked to have seen some sun bathers.
Sorry, but I’m not sure about you third photo. It needs another element for me, but I think the last one is best, probably because it has some human interest. It has a couple of triangles with the 3 people linked by there positions and the triangle in the foreground.
This interesting Photograph is Meg’s entry for the Monthly theme. I’m just posting it on her behalf.
I find it quite a complex photo with a lot going on. May be too much? I like the curves of the arches and they way they’re used as frames. It’s almost a monochrome picture, but I find the bright colurs in the bottom left a bit distraction from the rest of the photo. Others might think differently.

Glad you find the photographs interesting, Peter. The first two are actually taken from outside, looking in through the windows. But the light outside is so intense, and the windows both double-glazed and slightly darkened to protect against the heat and light, that we seem to be inside looking out. (I do like these disconcerting ambiguities!) BTW, the emptiness of the sun-loungers serves to emphasise the total absence of people – you’d have to be mad to sunbathe outside at 48 degrees Centigrade! (You have to be pretty mad to photograph in that heat, too!)
I have to agree with you that the last one (BW street photograph) is the best. 🙂May 20, 2015 at 9:49 am #9729
Thanks for posting that Pete. The reason I chose it was because it reminded me of Escher’s complex and confusing stairwells that seemed to be forever turning in on themselves. Yes the bright signs at the bottom are a bit distracting and appreciate comments.
