Monday 17 | A Year of Mondays

I thought I would take a lovely picture my only rose in the garden, but when I looked up I saw something completely different.  I manipulated the original photograph in PhotoShop because it’s the linear geometry in this image that I like.

No. 17

The rose (R. ‘Joseph’s Coat) attracted me to this corner but in the end it wasn’t what I was really looking at.  Interesting how, with a critical eye and no real plan, things got unstuck and went in a new direction.  More and more I’m hoping this project will beckon me down those unstuck paths.

  1. Cool image. The eye goes from the rose to the sky with a stop in between.

    Thanks, I’m trying, more and more through this project to see what’s exciting in this tiny space through my camera lens.

  2. Photos lie. I agree they’re best used as tools for exploring new ideas, often by chance.

    Sometimes a manipulated photo can be more honest than the raw image. I agree wholeheartedly with the ‘chance’ part too!
