Sally D’s Mobile Photography Challenge: Nature (and Man)

The topic for Sally’s photo challenge this week is nature. These trees behind a retaining wall illustrate a colorful connection between Nature and Man.

I used the John S lens/Robusta film/Jolly RainBo 2X flash combination in the Hipstamatic app to take this photo.

    Allan, you’ve created am image that evokes a way to live in harmony–a working together to honor both human ingenuity and natural wonders. The use of hues are an apt way to illustrate it. Adore Hipstamatic’s effects and how it emphasizes the colors and shaped. Happy Photo Challenge.

      Thank you for your comments, Sally. I agree with you about Hipstamatic’s effects. They are be a lot of fun.

    I also like the angle of the shot and the colors (in addition to what Markus said.)

      Hi. Janet. I drive past this house many times each week but it was not until I went for a walk last weekend that I truly got a feeling that I must stop and photograph this scene. I’m happy that I did.

    great composition between organic and created forms. Great work.

      Thanks, Marcus. It was one of those photos that “just had to be made” at the time.
      Have you ever had that experience?

        …beside a harmless car crash and the following trouble with his insurance.. 😀 😉 ..yes some photos have to be made!!! Definitely!!! It’s the best to do it immediately, because if you postpone it everything will be different. Light, mood… great that you did it!

          Thanks, Markus. The defining point was the POV from the sidewalk. It is SO much better than the one from the street and, yes, the the time was right (light, mood, wind, clouds—a now, or not at all, moment).

            Great that you spend so much effort to find the right POV, because sometimes the more comfortable way (just to stay where you are) could spoil a good photo.

            I agree with you about shifting POV and not getting comfortable. It keeps the creative juices flowing, that’s for sure.
