Wicker chairs by awefaul

Currently unavailable for purchase

“Art makes visible” is one of my favourite definitions because I find the art here inspiring and I am seeing more and better of what is all around. This picture in particular, of wicker chairs at the V&A Waterfront, Cape Town is dedicated to Elizabeth who’s pictures show a keen eye for the subtleties of light and also points her camera at chairs every now and then.

Digital photography is doing for photography what the piano did for keyboard music. You can still play music composed for the harpsichord on the piano but not the other way around.

    Nice repeating patterns. Who knew wicker chairs could be so photogenic?! ;) Lucy

  • Thanks Lucy. I also thought it is only stacked chairs that form patterns until I saw these.

    I love the details and tones in this shot – and in a lovely composition. Great work!

  • Thank you! I am still wondering if I should mention that it is a HDR image.

    Paradoxically though it may sound, I think if HDR processing is not recognizable as such, there is no need to mention it, unless you’re going to sum up all post processing steps. :)

  • Agreed. My manual explain how HDR was invented just to increase the tonal range to make the picture closer to how the eyes see light and shadow. The HDR groups insist on some technical background. So I will not enter it there.

    Very nice!

  • Thanks. But I wonder why you, of all people, would choose a simple picture of wicker chairs to comment on.

    Very interesting “abstract” of these wicker chairs. They do well in b/w.
    You certainly have a wealth of images from the V&A Waterfront on your site.
    PS. I am a South African, now living in Denmark. I have been here for over 20 years now.

  • It is a very different country from 20 years ago and I enjoy recording what’s happening. I take my holidays (about once a week) at the V&A Waterfront and more pictures can be seen over here

    The answer is very easy, Faul. I like patterns and I like simplicity. And I really like it when the two are combined in one photo.

  • I know Erica, I know. (should have ended with a colon and bracket) It’s because of pictures like yours that I noticed the chairs.
