One thing that I haven’t done for a long time is to post a series of photographs. I am getting back into shooting sets of photographs of a single object or scene but with slight differences so expect a few more over the coming weeks.
These three images are of a manhole cover after a snow melt. All of the objects in the various sections are exactly as found. Nothing has been arranged specifically for the photographs.
The appeal for me was twofold:
The contrast and similarity between the manhole cover material and the grit that has settled into the compartments and the geometry. The images are certainly not complex but they are quite striking – in my not-so-humble opinion that is.
The images were shot with a Lumix ZS8 set to the low resolution burst setting – great for snapshots as it keeps the shutter speed setting so high that camera shake is not an issue. Of course this means that the resulting images are not of the highest quality.
