August. Week 1

I recently became a member of the Boston MFA to encourage myself to visit it more often.  I finally got in to see some wonderful artwork and while having lunch there, I snapped this photo. Other than some initial adjustments in exposure and contrast, this first week is fairly straightforward – a picture of reflections upon reflections.

I have no idea what I’ll do with this in the coming weeks.I’m a little late this week.  I usually post this on Monday.

For those who are new readers, this is now a quarterly event hosted by Robyn G at Captivate Me .  More photographers are welcome to join in there!  I find it to be a great place to share and learn from others.

The natural world is phenomenal and so much of the man-made world - our architecture, our cities - are stunning accomplishments. They exist hand in hand in both beautiful expressions and sometimes disastrous manifestations. Our entire existence with the natural and the invented is intertwined – each dependent on the other, even as my art evolves, each breathing in the wake of the other. Surface design is one aspect of the process that I love. I thoroughly enjoy the play with color, value and construct, particularly the improvisation which starts with one thing, an idea, a glimpse of a vision, perhaps something that captures my eye for a moment in time and it grows organically. I become focused on whatever piece I'm working on and follow my muse to find my way.

  1. Hi Janis, I really like your image this month and your subtle adjustments for week 1. This would have captured my attention too with those fabulous reflections. Do hope you enjoy the MFA!! 😃
