Love the combi of these two!
Thanks very much! I’m really glad you like them. It took a while to find the right combination.
Ah, yes…I hadn’t seen that. Thanks very much, Olive!
Reminds me of one of my favourite poems…
“And indeed there will be time
For the yellow smoke that slides along the street,
Rubbing its back upon the window panes;
There will be time, there will be time
To prepare a face to meet the faces that you meet;
There will be time to murder and create,
And time for all the works and days of hands
That lift and drop a question on your plate;
Time for you and time for me,
And time yet for a hundred indecisions,
And for a hundred visions and revisions,
Before the taking of a toast and tea.”
Thanks so much, EllaDee! What a lovely connection. TSE’s one of the first poets I read – and Love Song… is a great one.
Wow Richard, that first image, was a fantastic photo. Everything working for you there, the composition is brilliant. I think I love it too because you can see it is a moment. Wonderful
Thanks so much, Leanne. I’m really chuffed you like it. I took three shots in quick succession – got “caught” in the third one. This was the first of them.
Such an elegant portrait of elegance and poise!
Thanks so much, Patti!
Nicely summed up with the title! The portrait works really well, and the abstract doors add to that! 🙂
Thanks very much, Richard! 🙂 I’m going to be shooting one of my collab shots today
Haha! Excellent! Finger crossed the weather holds up! 🙂
Hmm, well the weather held up, but one part of the idea nose-dived. 😦
Ooh… (You’re not just doing the ‘dramatic tension’ bit are you? 😉 )
No, I’m doing the irritable shutter-bug. Back to square one for part one…
Haha… Boooo! 😦
Very interesting pairing and your title brings them together-or not;)
Ha, ha, thanks very much, Elena. Yes, I think the images are a touch jarring – it’s like an abrupt change in “reading”. It’s an experiment I think I’m going to expand on.
I like the portrait very much. The “boarding up” is interesting seen with it … on several levels. Nice,
Thanks very much, George. I’ve got my own theories as to what the boarding up means here. Think I’m going to expand on this idea…
The first one are amazing and the title excellent… 🙂
Thanks so much, Drake! 🙂 The title is from a song by Van der Graaf Generator on their album Trisector.
One of my new favorites of your work Richard. Raw, elegant lifetime lists. . . . . . . .
Great, I’m really glad you like it, Kathryn. I’m thinking of expanding on this approach…
Unspoken connection between both images. Mind over lists and flow of thoughts around patches.
Yes, I hoped to make a connection between the two – not sure if it worked, but I like the disjuncture anyway (and it’s given me an idea for a way forward with something else…)
Ah, I’m excited and very curious! 🙂
That first one, ah, Richard. What a thoughtful look she has. The word lists with the title and the look of the woman is so fitting.
This is one of my favourites of yours.
Thanks so much, Ashley. I’m really chuffed you like it so much. I wanted to do something with the idea of interior and exterior.
Very captivating and thought-provoking combination, Richard. The portrait is outstanding.
Thanks very much, Melanie. I’m glad the post does something. Thanks! At the time I took it I was sure she was going to move, (which she did a bit) but I managed to get pretty much the look that had grabbed my attention in the first place.
A pair of pictures that connect on multiple levels.
I’m glad it works – I went through a few combinations before settling on this one. Thanks very much, John.
Beautiful set. Love the layering in both. They speak for themselves.
Thanks very much, Chris. Great. I’m really glad you like them.
I love this pairing.
Lists and a lifetime – amazing. Reflective and a little bit lonely, but elegant and beautiful.
And the painted, and raw wood – organic and structured both.
Great, I’m really pleased you like it, Karen – and that’s a really interesting spin on the images. I like that a lot. Thanks!
Think i must be the odd one out here but i love the second shot, the shadows and the grain and knots in the wooden panelling just appeal to me.
That’s great – thanks very much, Leon. I sort of see them as having equal worth, but they involve a different kind of looking. I’m with you on the second one today though.
Thanks very much. The post went through a few different incarnations, before I settled on this, which seemed the most jarring at the time.
I love how the window works in that first shot. Puts a natural fog/softness over the image and makes it all the more contemplative.
I hadn’t thought of that (of course), but you’re right. Thanks, Jennifer.
