Hard to walk by this still life without taking the camera out.
Interesting set…the shoe has me mystified, but then you do that regularly, and it’s a good thing. I just can’t figure out quite what was going on there. There’s something poetic about the No Parking sign and that light on the building behind it, the simplicity, it’s beautiful. Lock him up has me puzzled too. :-) .
You aren’t alone, Lynn, in wondering what’s the story behind the shoe. It was part of a pair, which appeared to be in pretty good shape, that somehow ended up in the broken window of a semi-abandoned building. The fact that it was really cold outside adds another interesting dimension.
One thing I’m pretty sure of however: It wasn’t advance publicity for a new shoe store.
The bricks behind the No Parking sign are a pale yellow but I preferred the b&w version instead. It’s always fascinating, isn’t it, when reflected light appears seemingly out of nowhere.
As for the final shot, just can’t resist making a political statement whenever the opportunity arises :)
Thank you. That shoe is still puzzling – and I really like it a lot. So, another thing I can’t make out is, is the chipboard behind the shoe a rounded, semi-circular shape? The sides of the image are beautiful little scenes – they look like reflections but not like glass, so, another puzzle. I know I don’t have to have the answers to appreciate the photograph, I just want them! ;-)
Yes, re the No Parking image, B&W is perfect there…and yes, always pleasing to see random reflections, especially the softer kind like this one. For me, it’s a nice NY memory. I’m sure I’ll see them from time to time here in town, when the sun returns, but I associate the phenomenon with the city. I like the restraint in your image.
Thanks, Lynn. To answer your questions:
(1) The chipboard is rectangular, filling in the space behind the shoe. (Wish I could see why you think it might be a semi-circle but I don’t.)
(2) Very sharp of you to comment on what’s happening on the sides. I don’t recall it being glass — if it were, there would have been bits and pieces of it everywhere. Instead, my guess is that it’s some sort of semi-reflective or polished surface. I’ll check once it warms up and getting there doesn’t feel like a schlep across the arctic :)
Here’s to semi-reflective polished surfaces then! And to warmer weather for us both.
But not too warm lest we all go extinct . . .
