Burnished balaustrades


Now that I walk with a stick, I am much more appreciative of the simple, inconspicuous things in life.

I don't have a stick but some sketchy knees. I too appreciate a good handrail. I'd not walk down the stairs without holding one. Love your POV here in both.

I don't walk with a stick, but I am always very familiar with such things as balustrades and handrails! These are particular pleasing, especially as they are outside and shiny.

I really like the top photo's textures and that glint of sunlight on the railing.

It's the simple things in life that matter. A thought provoking post Julie.

Slowing down enables us to see more. A great perspective.

belle profondeur de champ

It sure puts things into 'perspective' when you're not as able bodied as once upon a time Julie, I was in a balustrade situation just this afternoon.

'Beautiful depth of field', merci Bergson.

Beautiful depth of field and lovely point of view. I especially love the tone and texture of these.

Julie said...

Thank you, Ali. This is my favourite style of work as I wander the streets. I do take general panned landscape shots, but know that I will not be able to think of a way to use them to tell a story.

Two fantastic compositions, Julie!

Much nicer than the day before. I like the light ... makes it feel welcoming.
