Watercolors 4: Shallow water waves on Sand Beach

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

Regular wave patterns on Sand Beach in Acadia National Park in Maine, USA. It is an unusual watercolor composition in many ways: The colors are soft and subdued, there is little contrast, and everything is out of focus because the photograph was captured with a long exposure (a little over 3 seconds). The growing watercolors series is shown on this blog as well as in the watercolors gallery. I hope you enjoy!

June 2014 print: Abstract PWC building reflections

PWC building, Zurich-Oerlikon, Switzerland  Abstract reflections in the facade of the PWC building in Zurich-Oerlikon, Switzerland.

I have just printed the photograph above - the sixth print of this year and therefore the monthly print for June. It is a composition that I have shown you almost a year ago as part of the ongoing "nearby" series. The PWC building is covered by rotating glass panes that automatically position themselves against the sun. The abstract composition comes about due to the reflection of these glass panes in the window behind - the photograph is a look into the inter-space between the panes and the windows. In my opinion, the colors of this photograph fit together harmoniously and I like the regular vertical pattern - it looks a little bit like a colorful bar code. As a supplement, there is even a hint of a moiré pattern!

If there is any photograph on my website that you would like to have as a print, please suggest it as a monthly print.

Watercolors 3: Bavarian greens

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

As a follow up to last weeks green Boston watercolor photograph, here comes another composition of intermingled, reflected greens. Besides the colors and the fact the it is again only water that you are seeing, the two photographs are quite different though. The version above was created in Bavaria, close to the small town of Siegsdorf, and the body of water is a river (Traun) and not a pond. Consequently, the waves are more shallow and intermingled and thus reflect the leaf colors much more chaotically. Nevertheless, the result is, in my opinion, an attractive, abstract, green marbled watercolor composition.

Watercolors 2: Boston greens

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

An early watercolor photograph of mine: Green reflections in the lagoon of the Boston Public Garden. Besides all the beautiful shades of green I particularly like the contrasting color palette in the left and right half of the composition. It looks almost as if the right half was the negative image of the left half (or the other way around). I hope you enjoy and wish you a nice day!

Nearby: A look behind the facade

Photo & Video Sharing by SmugMug

Finally a new post! I have wanted to photograph the facade of this nearby office building since a long time, but I had difficulties finding a composition that I was satisfied with. The facade is composed of greenish glass panes with black dots, but unfortunately there is neither much contrast between the black dots and the dark glass, nor is there a structural element that would cast interesting shadows. On a recent photo walk in my neighborhood, I discovered that one of the glass panes was broken and thus permitted a look behind the facade. As expected, the back light now created a highly contrasty scene and, in my opinion, an interesting composition. An example that illustrates that sometimes the inside is more interesting than the outside and that it is worth revisiting a location - something which is much easier nearby than far away!
