Framing

 

Things like this happen when I stare at the sidewalk.

 

One doesn't stop seeing. One doesn't stop framing. It doesn't turn off and turn on. It's on all the time. --Annie Leibovitz

The Roman Soldier rests a moment!
Larry Bliss: A great interpretation... though I look at this as pure form.
> It really doesn't turn off > the seeing and the framing. Good observation here.
Larry Bliss: Thank you and nice to hear from you... This is one of my most beloved pictures... because it is pure form.

You see what others merely trip over Larry..
Larry Bliss: The sidewalks are full of these framings. I could do a million.

You could do a series on covers like this, Larry
Larry Bliss: Now you have planted the seeds of an obsessive idea, Lisl. smile

Kandinsky might have taken inspiration from such a scene.
Larry Bliss: I hadn't thought of that. Your comparison is most affirming.
Once again you have made something from the mundane interesting Larry
Larry Bliss: Nothing is more interesting than the mundane.
Chopsticks and a plate of steel.
Larry Bliss: A tough meal to digest. smile

I have noticed over the years that photographers tend to be more attentive about their surroundings. The more attentive ones, start to see opportunities like this one. Other forms than just the circle of the cover. Then the real professional ones - they spend so much time and even money one that one shot ... There is guy specialising in building photography. Once commissioned by an architect or whoever, he will observe that building for some weeks. Find the best weather, angle, time of day etc to off-set the qualities of that building at its best.

Me, I chase birds with the camera. One can't afford to work with a tripod (except in a bird hide), wait for best light, etc. Although I get good results with birds, I tend to be sloppy with other types of photography.
Larry Bliss: Observation is the key.

Don't you wonder where this goes when you lift it up and just go down?? Great picture, Larry.
Larry Bliss: Thank you, Astrid.
