I previously published a fliptych of this location near Port Renfrew, which I like very much. I like this set as well, though I shot it as a 5 part image (below), I prefer it scanned as two overlapping triptychs. I have processed it in black and white because I like the effect better for this scene, and because the light leak/film flaw in the last frame is much less visible this way.
Another shot from the side of the cabin I stayed in at Port Renfrew a few weeks ago. A previous view of this wall can be seen here.
Another photo taken at the Port Renfrew bridge on the west coast of Vancouver Island. I previously posted a picture of a canoe passing under my feet on a bridge, and of it emerging from behind a bridge footing. This time it is shot as a fliptych, where I rotate the half-frame Pen 180 degrees between shots.
I prefer the abstraction into diamonds of the sideways version above. Again it is a toss-up between the colour and black and white, though at the time of writing I prefer the colour. The not-sideways version is at the bottom, and I expect some of you will prefer that too.
This is from Port Renfrew when I was there a few weeks ago, and was taken close to my post Tracks which is a much stronger image in many ways, but I like this one too. Now it is warmer, but we have substantial amounts of snow on the ground, and still falling as I write this.
This blog is nearly on ice today as I am stranded by snow 300km from home in a rural and quite hilly place with summer tires on my car and no computer of my own to use. All my photographs from the past week or so are in RAW format in the camera, and I have no editing software to make them into a blog friendly format. So, this image was kindly sent to me from my folders at home, and I can post another blog. It would be a shame to break my ~2.5 year run of a post-a-day just because of the weather.
On the way from Victoria to Port Renfrew it is necessary to pass through Jordan River. And if you pass through Jordan River than you drive right past this place.
It is on the old logging industry facility; I am not sure if it was just a log-sort and camp, or if there was a sawmill here too. In any case, there are several buildings that seem to still be in use, and a few that might no longer be, all right next to the road, some on the ocean side, some to the north. This photo is from about three weeks ago, and is posted with a tip of the hat to Melinda Green Harvey who through her photography has taught me an appreciation for older buildings on their last legs, and hard shadows.
Frequent visitors to this blog might remember this chair which previously was shown with digital photographs here. This in-camera triptych is taken with the half-frame Pen on film. I am not sure if the change in chair orientation is enough transformation to make the photograph really work. For some reason, my son, while willing to rotate the chair for me, refused to sit in it. The white sweater probably had quite a bit to do with that. But it might have worked better with him sitting in one of the shots.
Again, I am not convinced that colour, or black and white, works best. So you get to see them both. I lean towards the colour – the rust of the chair goes well with some of the rocks and grasses and the reds in the alder branches too.
I had very pleasing news just as I was leaving town earlier this week. This photograph of mine placed as a Jurors Selection in a diptych photography competition. The competition was called Same But Different and was put on by the New York Center for Photographic Art. You can see the gallery with my photo in it here (but you won’t be able to view it on any flash-challenged devices like most smart phones and probably some tablets too).
Many of you will recognise this photo, which I call Negative Horizons, as part a fliptych in my Horizon(tal) series, other versions of which were posted here.
