Edit – To Understand

Metal Geometry - Lac St. Anne, Alberta
Metal Geometry – Lac St. Anne, Alberta

A look back edit this morning, time looking to understand the appeal of this image. Again, more metal geometry attracts in the patterned strength of linear lines, the shadow play in degrees of light and shape and the trestle’s placement within context – linearity, water and foliage.

Listening to – Maroon 5’s ‘Lucky Strike,’ Roisin Murphy’s ‘Night of the Dancing Flame’ and Wang Chung’s ‘To Live and Die in L.A..’ Then it’s one of those intriguing songs of observation from all those years ago with Stocki’s ‘Rhythm and Soul’ broadcast on BBC Radio Ulster, a song to recommend – Peter Himmelman’s ‘Impermanent Things.’ Next, it’s Jane Siberry and K.D. Lang with ‘Calling All Angels.’ Finally, it’s a song from Ray Lamontagne & the Pariah Dogs that fits any of us at the end of our teaching year – ‘For the Summer.’

    1. Hey there, Kiwiskan:

      For me, its the incline metal work that draws attention, then the planted braces, anchoring the structure and then the water and foliage.

      This may be one of those photos that forces the viewer to view here and there and there … and back again. 🙂

  1. The sunlight glinting and the band of red are eye-catchers here, hard lines of man mixed with the softness from natural lines. Very good. and nice emphasis.

    1. Hey there, Jim …

      Thanks for sharing these words … photography is definitely about the art of seeing; with editing it may be the art of arriving, too ….

      Good schtuff! 😉
