Exploring with a Camera - Repetition
I didn't set out looking for something to photograph to represent repetition, but after reviewing the images from a very recent weekend trip I realized I had a few that would be great for this month's prompt. There are many things that are repeating within this scene - the slats of the pier, the railing supports, the pier lights. This was taken right before dark, so everything was a kind of drab color (sun was setting to the right - but the colors weren't reaching this far), so I decided to make it a black and white image (I may have gone a little too far into the "black"). I carried the tripod around this trip and it really does make a difference when trying to capture certain shots - especially in a brisk sea breeze (technically a "bay" breeze) .
Here's another image from the same pier - just another section of it, and a little later in the evening (it is a very very long pier, 1620 feet total in length) that I also gave a black & white treatment to - again maybe a bit heavy on the "black". This was an attempt on my part to be a little artsy & not have everything all nicely lined up. I do like the way the distant lights show up as tiny white dots, and the darkness approaching the bright pier fishing lights.
