Glass Screen

_ds86617_copyVisiting a coastal town at or near high tide can limit the number of opportunities for shoreline photography, and on this occasion forced me inland to explore the town centre.

This was the case last weekend when we re-visited Worthing, and it resulted in this picture. The sun shone out of a cloudless sky, lighting up this glass screen. A light fitment provided a convenient object behind which to hide the sun, and an old-fashioned lantern on an exterior wall helped to complete the picture.


About LensScaper

Hi - I'm a UK-based photographer who started out 45+ years ago as a lover of landscapes, inspired by my love of outdoor pursuits: skiing, walking and climbing. Now retired, I seldom leave home without a camera and I find images in unexpected places and from different genres. I work on the premise that Photography is Art and that creativity is dependent on the cultivation of 'A Seeing Eye'. I'm not averse to manipulating images to produce derivatives that may sometimes be far removed from the original.

    Great composition and tones, Andy!

  2. I like the scattered look to the elements in this photograph, and how you (and the objects) break up the space.

      Thanks Linda. It wasn’t an easy image to capture. I had to hide the sun because otherwise the contrast would have been too huge for the camera to cope with. And then find an interesting composition. The ornamental outside light is I think critical to the success of this image.

    Good geometric approach to the image. It works.

    Beautifully crafted photo, well seen and processed too.

  5. A photo that makes me feel in some kind of Japanese shadow theater. I really like how you have framed the frame, with so much going on along the edges. A great photo.

    • LensScaper says:

      Many thanks Otto. It was difficult working out how to compose this and frame it, complicated by the fact that I was looking straight into the sun, and I needed to hide the sun behind something. I’m glad you like it.

    Great composition.

    It truly does have an east-meets-west feel. Very nice!

      Thanks Linda. I really couldn’t work out what purpose this up-above glass screen served. It didn’t keep the cold out, or the wind. It was just a large expansion of glass that needed cleaning. But I can’t complain – it provided an image.
