The Ruin at the Cross | PT.I.

These two frames are a taster of perhaps a few more to come, from a nearby church ruin. The fact that this single-storey derelict has its windows boarded-up is a little bit of a mystery to me and, a slight disappointment as it does rather mean that I can’t use those wonderful apertures as any kind of focal-point in any of my pictures. On the other hand, I am forced to put in more effort in my search for pleasing angles and views, and on such a day, I couldn’t think of anything better to do, than just that. 

(Both images photographed with a 450nm internally converted Ricoh GR, + front-mounted Hoya R72 IR filter at 28mm.)

    1. There were two reasons I chose that angle for the second shot, actually. but I won’t take the romance out of the frame by telling you, Alena. 🤪 I’m not sure genius has much to do with my work but I am delighted you think so! You’ve absolutely made my day! Thank you, A! 🙏📷

  1. Something about cemeteries. Kind of intriguing in a historical perspective. Many stories there. And even the markers are impermanent. The lichens grow on granite, slowly dissolving it. Great angles on your shots.

    1. Thank you, H. Like most, I’m intrigued by such places. A reminder of a final destination and of just how important it is to appreciate everything before it. How we mark the pasts of others hasn’t really changed either, a respectful familiarity of those we’ve never even known. Or what they may have achieved in life. So glad you like these. 🙏

    2. I think, by your comments, I must sometimes achieve what I hope for most; to engage a viewer. I’m very happy to read your thoughts, H. Detail or sharpness aren’t elements I pay too much attention to as much as decent focus, ironically, unless I’m shooting macro. For normal focal-length, scenic photography, my only real considerations are light and framing but if I’m ever pleasantly surprised by any frames on review, well, that’s a good sign for me. It’s all very casual really, believe it or not, and I hardly process in post at all. I really am glad that you see what you see. Very grateful, indeed! 🙏

    3. Your framing, and this goes without saying, is very artistic. I bet if you sat down with 6 people and showed them one of your works they would all pick out different details that capture their eye and give you different interpretations of what they see and feel – and that is true art. For the image you capture raises more in their minds 🙂

    4. It’s not often I struggle for a response but, you got me there, H! I think that would be an interesting conversation indeed; I’d probably wait outside the door, though and wait for conclusions. 😂 Thank you! 🙏 📷
