Let me know which you prefer and why.


Pont of view can be the backbone of a fabulous photograph. Or it can stun the viewer with mystery and questions. Either way it is one of the vital elements of an image’s success.

In the Lens section are my entries for this week’s photo challenge. The first is a rather normal park bench that struck me as having stellar lines when seen from an angular position. The shot brought out design elements in a way that is not usually noticed.

The second image melds reflection with architecture: giving clouds a frame of a different sort. Usually a skyline defines clouds’ momentary meaning. Instead I used natural light to transform the way in which the glass gave meaning to that day’s afternoon formations.

Note: As always I welcome any comment about this post or any part of my blog.

    Both of them are stunning but it was the park bench that really got my attention. Without the description I would have taken forever to work out what the structure was.
