Art in the Everyday

“Photography is a small voice, at best, but sometimes one photograph, or a group of them, can lure our sense of awareness.” William Eugene Smith

Art is everywhere. It’s an awareness. Even everyday objects hold innate beauty. These images are part of a series I’m shooting this year to push myself creatively and see in new ways. A creative spirit walk. Just me and my camera.

    Beautiful work, Randy – now can you just imagine a bride in this environment – WOW !

    Why yes I can Gill.. 🙂

    This would not work for just any bride, as most of these areas are pretty dirty, so perhaps a bride that wants a creative session in her dress? That would be amazing!

    Can I just say how cool it is that I have the UK contingent checking out my blog? That just made my day! I’m International!

    These are gorgeous. I’m really glad you’re doing personal projects. I think it will be really good for you, for all of us!

    I really like what you captured here. Great compositions and nice enhancements.

    These stand out as favorites.

    #1- Fuse Box; I love the look here with the warm tone box and the mysterious monotone background.

    #2 – Tracks; I like its simplicity and perspective. This brings back memories when I was a kid and into model trains. As you said before us photographers are drawn to them.

    #3 – Bridge Railing; What great tones and luminance these evoke. Looks way better than the real thing.

    #7 – Reflection in Window; Although I have seen many variations on this, you really made this image your own with the opaque windows and the chosen color pallet. Nicely done, its one of Karin’s favorites too.

    #8 – Rusty Building with Beam; The cold blue steel beam against the warm rusty tones of the old building, a great juxtaposition.

    #10 – The translucent light on the windows and dark smokestacks. Lots of stories here.

    #11 – Windows; Another one of Karin’s favorites.

    Take care!

    I think it is important to be alone and explore our creativity… finding art in our everyday. Just amusing ourself. Thanks for letting us see your musings! Very inspiring!
