A September Field Trip

Digital original
I often find themes flowing through my "casual" photography - those images made while teaching, and leading field trips, as opposed to photographing for myself. On this field trip in particular, I found myself drawn to very simple compositions - in this case, the shadow of the light fixture caught my eye.

The dramatic light of the sunny morning helps make the above image work; the white horizontal line in the background is simply the sun catching the edge of a steel plate...in reality, it is painted as black as the rest of the hull behind the anchor.

The last image was made right at the end of the field trip, and is by far the most minimal of the day - but also my favourite. I have been photographing these spaces for three years now, and never seem to run out of new things to see.
