Another symmetry inspired image, or a Nikhil inspired image 🙂 I’ve seen Nikhil shoot this particular spot a few times already, but I never tried it, mainly because I wasn’t “seeing” anything that captured me, this week was a slow week, I only got out one day to take anything, and this day I forced myself to shoot something, if not I’d have had to post an image from a recent wedding I attended, and I didn’t want to have to rely on that 🙂
This is the side of the Ocean View Hotel facing the seawall, the salt air can be seen taking it’s toll on the iron-work, and the rust staining the face of the wall. This particular afternoon I was going for something simple, I tried a boat, some silhouettes, just the plain old sea and sky, but I kept going back to this image for a second look. Although I was tempted to go for a monochromatic image I liked the red iron structure and the rust-stains, so I kept it in colour. also the discolouration on the walls added to the warm afternoon sunlight 🙂
As usual, click on the image for a better view in the Gallery.

I like the symetry of the picture. Well done, Michael
Thanks Bob! We recently started a loose group of photographers in Guyana (on Facebook) and there’s a Bird enthusiast, well, he is enthusiastic about photographing birds, I am not sure if he is also an avid Bird Watcher. I encouraged him to visit your blog! I hope you are well.
I would assume that is me you are talking about mike 🙂 Thanks.
Nice pic Btw.
Thanks Vishnu, I know its not your kind of photo 🙂 Thanks for the visit!
Best thing for me is always that warm afternoon light casting shadows. I wasn’t happy with any of the photos I got this particular week. Still have them in my queue to be processed. I think I only uploaded one or two.
Nik, we need more time in the day 🙂
