What I saw . . . What I made


I found all these metal tubs in a boat yard in Oregon and the first thing that caught my eye was the repeating pattern all the stacked "edges" made.

But what I really liked were the handles. It's one thing to have a repeating pattern, it's another to have a focal point or a design of some sort.

So I found three (rule of thirds, don't you know!) handles that were sort of bunched together and that's what I focused on.

As you can see from the overview photo, the light was harsh. If I were to do this again, I might also concentrate on incorporating some handle shadows as a subject.

See the bottom-most tubs? See how the shadows hang down against the smooth surface? There are some photos to be made there, too.

Oh, sure . . . the moment I move away from Oregon I find something I should have shot when I lived there! Typical.
