It’s time for the second installment of “5 Photos I Like.” The first one is here. The theme for today is “walls.”
I like this photo because it creates structure out of a dizzying amount of lines and angles. The contrasts in tonality supply a structure on the large scale, but as you look closer at the details the photo almost acts like a fractal. The lines and angles that make up the larger structure of the image are repeated in each smaller portion of the image. A challenging photo to pull off well.
Security cameras are everywhere these days and innocent people are getting fed up with being watched constantly. This is an excellent piece of satire. It kind of reminds me of something you might see in the game Half-Life 2. The fact that the camera is pointed straight at a blank wall makes me laugh too. Perhaps it was tampered with…
What’s not to like about this picture? It’s perfectly composed and it has a cute kid reading a book. On a ladder. Well done, Ozyman.
This photo shows what can be accomplished by paying attention to light, color, and composition. A seemingly simple scene becomes a compelling photograph if you know where (and when) to look.
As I’m sure you can tell, I love humor in photographs. This shot was a fantastic find and the more you think about it, the more amusing it becomes. This is exactly the kind of thing I love about photography. It teaches you to see in a different way and to notice things that others may not.
