Zigging and zagging


When it's cold and dull outside, it feels more enticing to stay in playing with photo processing than it does to go out with my camera.  This started off as a reflection of some houses/apartments and trees in the canal - 'nowt special', as they say in Yorkshire. (ie: Nothing special!)  I took it because I liked the strong zig-zag line and I think this graphic treatment emphasises that.  Perhaps it's still nowt special.  I quite like it, though I'm sure it could be refined further.  It's good to push the boundaries and try something different.  I guess this qualifies as a 'Weekend Reflection' -  though not my usual kind of entry into the theme day.  Do click the link and explore some more of the entries.  There are some great photos this week.

  1. Now that is very "arty"!
    The contrast twixt the man-made, concrete angles of the building and the organic serendipity of mother nature is hightened by the stark monochrome finish to the image.
    A series mayhap? "Man v Nature" . . . and how nature always wins!

  2. I like it too. Isn't it wonderful when you suddenly see some potential in an overlooked image?

  4. I like it, and I agree! This time of year when there is not so much colour outside, I take less photos, which on the other hand leaves me time to play with them more.

  5. Very original. Makes you look twice before you see what it is. Nicely done.

  6. It has the look of a wood block or linocut print.

  7. Well done. You didn't start with much, but I like what you produced. Silk purse from a sow's ear?

  8. It looks like a black and white photo. But it's upside down. Very nice the other way too. Thank you Photoshop. Thank you Jenny!
