Abstract in Orange by goddarb

300 views, September 5, 2013

Taken in Pembroke, Ontario, Canada on March 31, 2012
A(perture priority), shutter speed 1/125, F/5, ISO 100, focal length 120mm

Love my camera and am working to improve. My photos are generally taken with a Nikon D3000 with either an AF-S Nikkor 18-55mm lens or a 55-300 mm lens. European shots and a number of more recent ones were taken with a Sony Cybershot camera. I have a new IMAC and play with the iPhoto program. I also crop judiciously. Constructive criticism is welcome.

    This kind of made me think of the Painted Desert. I don’t think I’d tell anyone this was in a window. Let them imagine what they think it is, because it really does stimulate the imagination. Very nice capture. I love it! But then, I also love ORANGE! :)

  • OK I took out the description. You are right, Let people think what they will. Thank-you for the good advice and the geneous comment.

    Major kudos to your innovation for the subject material goddarb, and especially the capture…a definite Primo Supremo Fave. >Ron<

  • It is a bizarre element in this world and it needed a photo! A real hoot, if you will! Thank-you for your enthusiasm.

    the chemist in me thinks it’s sulphur, but I will equally believe that you have travelled to another planet to take this shot :)

  • I don’t think it is sulphur but rather a type of insulation – exposed insulation at that. Weird. I like the other planet view as well – but then I see all the dust……Thank-you so much for the delightful comment!

    As you know, I am always attracted to abstract forms! (Under statement?). This could be injection foam packing, mold or a Petri dish culture. I’m inclined to think it is mold, however, as it has begun to decay, (the gray surface), and spore bearing fungi are beginning to form. There’s beauty in the ugly! Nice one, Beth! :-)

  • I think it is some kind of insulating foam and probably injected. Believe it or not , It was oozing out on the exterior of a house – so I figured the gray was more likely to be dirt or dust. The Owner has since covered it up! Delighted that you like this! By getting it all in the frame I thought it looked more like the surface of another planet! Yes, ugly but interesting! Thanks, Peter!!

    Great looking natural abstract, Beth. That orange is outrageous. I’d love to see this in Solo Exhibition.

  • Thank-you very much – I am delighted, Frannie. I have been a member of the group for a while but mainly to get the announcements of your exhibitions – I tried once or twice but figured I am simply not up to the quality your group needs. I’d love to see my work there and it will be in a minute or so!

    Wow! An eye-catcher for sure! Love the bright vivid color and it is surely an interesting piece to explore.

  • thank-you, Carol – this is a strange find and something that cries out for a story. So glad you like this!

  • And thanks too for the FAVE!
