Spool of Light

I got carried away with some shots of  a very simple wound up wire garden fencing that I came across in a community garden.   I was out midday, so the sun was shining full blast and was lighting up the interior of this “spool” of fencing in a very interesting way.  There happened to be two long, slender leaves coming up the center of the fencing which added to the visual interest.

  1. Photography truly is an interesting art form…when you can turn garden fencing into such interesting photos that’s ART !!

  6. Great find. Kind of looks like a warp tunnel or worm hole. Very cool.

    • Thanks, Stevie. That’s exactly the potential I saw for the image when I looked down into the wire fence, so I’m glad it comes through in my interpretation!

  8. I think the first is the best. With something like that, you have to be careful not to become redundant.

    • I like your point about redundancy, Shimon, thank you. I should have chosen one photograph and gone with it. Since this was an experiment, I was simply having a hard time choosing! I got caught up in the effects of the light, since they are different with each shot (they are all different shots, not the same one processed differently).

    Very well done! The photography Muse will be pleased with your enthusiastic efforts: I know I enjoyed them. They have a Kubrick and Arthur C. Clarke quality about them. 🙂

    • Thank you so much! I’m really encouraged by your comment. The image I had in my head when I saw the wire fencing is what I ended up with here, so I think I’m making good process.

    I see so many different things here. An inverted spool of yarn, the last one a hummingbird nest, a coral snake in a sewer line. Nice images!

    • I love hearing what you see in these images, and your vision makes me feel better about including all the different versions. Thank you.

  19. these are great.
    while i like the simple richness of the b&w of the first image, i do like the subtle colour contrast in the second one.
    thanks for sharing 🙂
