2014 Deck – Week 19

Buildings with character always fascinate me, but often I will look at the scene as I am passing and think, “it doesn’t feel right”; that has worked against me a few times already when one day I pass by and the building has been demolished.  If it were just for a record of the building, then any photo would do, but I don’t just want a record, I want a photo that speaks to me.

There’s a mosque / masjid at La Bonne Intention (LBI) that I often pass, and consider that there’s a photo there somewhere, but I seldom see what it is that I should be photographing, I’ve stopped to photograph it twice, the first time I was trying to force the photo, but the second time, I was about three villages away and saw the skies to the south and thought that this was a good opportunity to try the photo(s) that I wanted.

Even before reaching the mosque I knew that I’d be using multiple exposures for some HDR processing after.

The Deck – Week 35

I took very few photographs this week, I am not sure why that is, I just took very few.  So out of twenty-five photographs total over seven days, I had to choose one for The 2010 Deck.  As it turned out, I found some I really liked, and the choice would have been hard had it not been for this particular image in the set.

All the elements just fell into place for this one, and I was very happy with the final shot.

In observance of the holy month of Ramadan I give you this week’s Deck photograph:
