I don’t know why but I found this old garage very interesting. It had good symmetry but was put off balance by all of the flowers on the right side. I love the vine reaching through the busy side of the frame to the ‘boring’ side of the garage. I thought the whole thing worked well together. I tried a composition that was zoomed into the right side with one of the doors and flowers. Let’s just say that didn’t make the cut. It would have been nice to get more detail of the flowers but that’s alright. At least I tried.
I can see this old garage with its owner sitting in that old chair back during the towns prime. Kind of makes me think of the movie Cars with the hopping town that was forgotten about because of the interstate system.
Sorry I haven’t posted in a couple days due to illness and a job interview.
Friday’s image is from the Cathedral of Our Dear Lady or in German, “Dom zu unserer lieben Frau”. This cathedral has a lot of fascinating history. Such as the current Pope Benedict XVI was the cardinal here before leaving for the Vatican. Where this photo is taken you can feel the Devil’s Breath, that’s a long and interesting story you’ll have to look up. It deals with the Devil’s Footprint in the entranceway of the cathedral.
In the back of the cathedral there are these neat brass details on some gates. My good friend Forest Taber, from Taber Photography, gave me his 50mm lens and told me to capture a shot on these details. I had never played around with a 50mm before so he helped me out a lot with it. I had a lot of fun with it and will have to practice more with my own 50mm soon when it stops being so crappy outside in Iowa.
Have a wonderful day!
