I’ve added a new page to this site called Abstract Photography. This photo is one of many featured on that page. You may click on “Abstract Photography” above or use this link https://onbeingbecoming.com/abstract-photographs/
This image is one single image taken on the same level. I was enthralled with the various light fixtures mixing Tungsten and Fluorescent and the colors. Obviously sitting in my car and shooting out the drivers side window. This was on the lowest level of the underground parking deck. Level 5 or maybe Dante’s 5th level of hell.
Sometimes I like deliberately using the the wrong white balance setting for the color that it gives.
I’ve gone to one of my favorite haunts (an underground car park) All new images ,but one or two of them are re-shoots including this first one, in the series.
This series is inspired by the album OBLIVION HYMNS by the band Hammock. One image a day for each of the 10 original songs + 3 bonus images for the deluxe edition of the album. Total 13 images in 13 days (13 has always been a lucky number for me).
I love Hammock’s moody work and it has been a perfect soundtrack for my current state of mind. So here we go…..
A natural/found diptych.
At first glance the final work may look like it has nothing to do with the original. But it just goes to show that if you put enough time and work into it – magic happens. It took me about two hours to get this where I wanted. I did extensive layering (selective and de-selective). I did a lot of playing with color. I also created/added a few textures.
I’ve got magic to do – just for you!
Magic To Do from PIPPIN
Continuing with the posts of the past couple of days todays image has a different source. The base image (bottom) was from the outside of the elevator shaft on the top level of a car park that is used for the Akron Public Library. I also used the steam engine shot from yesterday to add some curves and texture on the final manipulation. Many Many layers were used in this process. I like the Monochrome against the orange and blue of the Library sign. I can imagine printing this on a large aluminum metal sheet.
There is always a price to pay. It doesn’t matter when you pay – whether you pay admission or pay upon exit. You’re gonna spend spend spend ’til the money’s all gone and you’re way down in the hole.
Where do you stand? To the left of things or to the right?
I came across this sign while exiting a parking deck(car park). What the signs didn’t tell me is that if I turn right I would only lead to a dead-end and no real exit. I got to thinking about that: Isn’t that the way of the “far right” – always leads to a dead end? So, I think it’s best to be left of center. I have leftist leanings – truth. “You can find me, left of center…”
