Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction (Canal)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.

The windmill I posted in my earlier entry was originally quite near this canal (when it was still a river, actually on the right).

Weekly Photo Challenge/B4 Retouch: Refraction (Montpellier)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.

This is a fountain on Place de la Comédie of Montpellier. I love water with the light coming in from the back, giving it substance and firmness. A contemplating young woman with dog.

The B4 retouch series:
I browsed my archive for pictures to publish in – an originally – small series. That series caught on a bit more than I thought. All of them are not retouched yet. Scratches, dust and stains are not removed.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction (Leiden)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.

The light reflecting off and shining into the office building created a new visibility inside of people and interior. At the same time the glass reflected the outside.

Weekly Photo Challenge: Refraction (Rose)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.

The light reflecting in the wet rose was wonderful against the grey/dark backdrop of Autumn rain. At moments like this it is preferable to have a DSLR instead of an iPhone at hand. The iPhone lacks a nice flexible sensor to capture great contrasts, but I am pleased with the outcome.

Weekly Photo Challenge/B4 Retouch: Refraction (Nîmes)

This weekly photo challenge is about ‘refraction’. Photography is painting with available or manipulated light. Light is one of the most welcome instruments when looking through a camera. Sometimes it bends, sometimes it contrasts and stands out to a part of a photo. Sometimes it just evenly shows what is there to marvel.

This series  was taken in Musée Carré d’Art at Nîmes. The light of the outside reflecting into and in the building itself, showing the city around it. Light was used by the architect to connect the modern building with the old town around it. In between old buildings, overlooking a square with a Roman temple (Maison Carrée), this modern, cubical and transparent building stands out. It is a design by Norman Foster.
