12.28.2019 Rusty Rocky Abstract

Just puttered around Quabbin Park yesterday on a dreary gray day.

After driving around and feeling less than inspired I got the photographer’s blues so “I decided to give up living and go shopping instead“.Β  πŸ™‚

  1. As we know so well, not every jaunt turns up something spectacular. You’ve been on a roll recently but this is still okay, what with the rust and the lichens.

  3. I would say that you had a very good day. This is a beautiful abstract. And you got to point me to Paul Butterfield who is one of the musicians who successfully answered the question in the mid-60s, can blue men sing the whites?

    I like this one, Steve. It’s a perfect subject for those overcast days. Very nice set of tones with a pleasing composition using that strong angled line. I think it works very well.

    • Thanks, Todd. I knew leaving the house that the light was going to be disappointing. It still would have been good for ice but most of it has melted. It is possible for rocks to melt but if that happened I doubt photography would be among my worries. πŸ™‚

    Shopping is a dying art. Allegedly. (I am on a shopping break now 😒)

    I like the variety of colors and textures, and the patterns made by the fissures in the rock. I assumed the rusty red is an indication of iron; that reminded me of the group Iron and Wine. They’ve been around for a while, so you probably know them. This is among my favorites of their songs; it’s got a rock-like edge to it.

    • Yes, I believe it is from a bit of iron in the rock.No, I haven’t heard them before but enjoyed hearing them via your link. I liked that they have a “beginner’s guide to Iron and Wine.” I’ll have to listen to a few.

    It’s quite beautiful, Steve, what a good way to make use of a gray day. We’ve had plenty of those around here, but they are good for this sort of thing, aren’t they? πŸ™‚ And ah, the Paul Butterfield Blues Band, nice!!
