11.02.2015 Textural Change of Pace

No doubt everyone is tired of all that color by now.  So yesterday, a gray and lightly drizzled day, I went looking for monochrome water instead of all those tiresome leaves.  But…it is still a favorite place-the Middle Branch of the Swift River in North Quabbin.

Water-Texture-2-110115-700WebWhat really first attracted my attention-white water is really attractive but a fairly common subject-was the texture of the water streaming in from the right.  But I also wanted to do something a little more abstract than just framing it.

I also did make an image from the left, looking upstream at this cascade, but that’s for another post.

And on another subject….I am always confused about using gray or grey.  I finally searched to find out the difference.  It seems the only difference between them is the audience.  British English-Grey…American English-gray.  Otherwise the only difference is if it is someone’s last name.  🙂

    Nice flow lines.

    I suppose you could try a photo of a grey horse on a gray day.

  2. Terrific work Steve. Love the abstract quality and the black and white. I think the second is a favorite, but I really like the first as well. I love the simplicity of the second in particular.

    Good work on the grey gray – now I don’t have to look it up. I’ve hesitated on that a few times.

    The second is beautifully done. It could be the nicely groomed mane of the Old Gray Mare, hanks of carded wool ready for spinning, grain filling a farmer’s bin, or the sort of satellite water vapor imagery that would make me very, very nervous. I’m having a hard time choosing, here. I usually wouldl have said #1 was my favorite, but there are so many layers to #2, I could look at it a good long time.

    Just in case you run out of things to do when it starts getting really, really cold, here’s a fun little photography project you might enjoy. It came to me via Twisted Sifter, but since you’re on FB, I thought you might like the entry that had more photos and the setting information.

  5. Really cool captures, Steve. Oh, and I completely appreciate the explanation on the difference between Gray and Grey. I knew that and then I keep forgetting.
