Featuring shadows on concrete - flower stems and crab apple limbs
The only alteration from 'reality' in the processing took the form of levels, contrast, and clarity types of adjustments. No color shifts or replacements. No creative filters. The scene is a section of a concrete wall, upon which shadows of flower stems had been cast. There were faint patches of color on the wall - in particular, orange and white. I have no idea what caused them. At the bottom left, a few hardy white alyssum blossoms appear.
I have subsequently photographed this same scene in ways that make the shadows more obviously those of flower stems, but the abstract quality of this image still pleases me.
I continue to be deeply concerned with the health and well being of my friend and housemate. He continues to be in a care/rehab facility, where I spend a good part of each day. I continue to have little time or energy to devote to photography beyond processing one or two photos a day, more as a distraction than anything else. I do take time to view the photos all my smugmug friends are posting, and hope to sprinkle the occasional appreciative comment here and there, now and then. I deeply appreciate the kind thoughts and words of encouragement some of you have shared with me. It all helps.
