Wyke Walk 2 : A Lock And An Ornamental Portcullis


I know I should think about lines and patterns and shapes and all that sort of photographic stuff. But all I could think about was how the fire exit door appeared locked and guarded with a form of ornamental portcullis. Visions of skewered and barbecued flesh came to my troubled mind.

It does seem rather odd. I'm surprised the H&S people haven't fined them, whoever they are.

I'd rather think about lines than skewered flesh. Do you, as a photographer, weigh up the angles before taking a shot?

Val : I would like to think that it was something as conscious as that, but it isn't. But after all these years I do sometimes get a feeling of what might be effective in the necessary two dimensions of a photograph.

The finials at top of the fence reminds me of the Fleur de Lis.

Great silhouette shot, Alan!

Interesting word silhouette. From some French fellow called Etienne apparently. Started many centuries ago, when some lovelorn lady wanted to remember her lover who was going away on a long journey so she traced the outline of his reflected face shadow, which leads naturally to our post on shadows and reflections....
