Decay, Rust, Ruin Makes For A Good Photo Shoot–Why Is That?
I am attracted to objects that have rusted or deteriorated. Why is that? They make for great photos–in fact one blogging friend, Whatapic, excels at making artwork out of rusty, old objects.
I used to know someone who’d focus in on small portions of rust, making them look quite like watercolors. I guess I live in an area where we have to be one step ahead of the rust as the salt air will destroy anything that’s metal.
YYesterday I focused on my Father’s work shed–this is my mother’s garden shed. But I like the old glass ddoor knob which has colored with age–the key must’ve been displaced sometime back . . . I suppose old aand decaying things provide nice colors and patterns. And old, broken-down doors–why is it that tthese things make for good shoots?
Note: 🙂 Thanks so much for all the well-wishes. My father is home. He’s only been home for three weeks in the past four months. But everyone in the hospital tells us how sweet and kind he is–I wish I had his fortitude.
