This week’s challenge read:
Cold, hard steel. Shiny Aluminum. Or even rusted and broken down. Find your inspiration in metal this week.
I have two shots this week. One my sweetheart really likes (and so do I); the other, I like — not more, but differently than the other. They are quite different.
Most hedges around pastures have a strand of barbed wire running through to help keep predators at bay. Here is the beginning of one, anchored into a fence post at one end of the hedge. I like the rustic nature of this picture. Also, that I shot the photograph I wanted — created the feel I wanted — for this shot.
This is, however, I think the more spectacular shot for its complexity and textures. Again, I accomplished the photograph I was going for and I’m really pleased with that.
I’ll share more about my search for metallic inspiration later. This week, I was stretched a little in my quest to become a better photographer. It feels good and has been fun. Neat to look at my world just so slightly differently and get a brand new perspective on it.
