Across the street -Suburban Landscape 2: A red car passing Sunday afternoon

Abstract photo of a Suburban Landspcape

I believe that the seeded glass often used in the windows of older homes provides an excellent backdrop for the passage of time. It obscures the details of the subject giving the scene a sense of mystery, while still providing the the rough patches of color and the general forms that make up the landscape. As you can gather from the title, this seeded glass picture, was taken at a different time than the previous one that I had posted. The texture of the seeded glass remains the same, but the color scheme is warmer, and the shapes that are visible through the glass have changed. It has been my experience, that the quite moments in life are silent treasures waiting to be discovered and appreciated.

Across the street 1: Suburban Landscape photography

I took this picture some time ago, but I still enjoy the texture that the seeded glass provided. It (the glass) softened all the details of the neighbor’s front yard to the point of breaking them down to irregular bursts of vibrant color, only the vague outline of the larger shapes within the composition can be seen. As a painter, I am always fascinated with creating pictures that look like paintings. Sometimes I choose to use these pictures as studies for actual paintings, other times, I choose to simply enjoy the photograph as the final product of my artistic experimentation.
