This week's P52.2 theme: geometry and balance. Our goal was to balance the frame of our image using geometric shapes as opposing forces to our main subject. This week was a bit of a bust until today, when my family headed up to the Storm King Art Center - an annual pilgrimage to celebrate my mom's birthday. The warm, high sun was not ideal for photos, especially since I forgot my polarizer - but an abundance of geometric sculptures and a whole day spent with my favorite subjects most certainly made up for the challenging light. Below, my take on balance. To see everyone's work this week, please visit Who We Become!
Week seven of Photo 52. This week is the third in our month of backlight, and while my post is perhaps more personal than usual it partially explains my general absence from the blog and the camera. Our little guy just turned three, and his grandma just turned three plus a few, so the family has been in town to celebrate. We took a trip up to Storm King Art Center and enjoyed a beautiful afternoon filled with backlight, fun and love.
Please continue around the blog circle to see what my very talented friend Lisa Rigazio has been up to this week. She has an amazing eye for texture and contrast, and uses it to bring a little edginess to her work, be it an urban scene or her two darling girls.
