    Photo Assignment: Weekend 11/10/07

    You know, these threads just keep going, and going, and going. . . . What fun!

    Thanks to everyone who has posted a photo, offered critique, asked questions, given advice or shared techniques. Thanks to everyone who stopped in to have a look.

    Having thanked the academy, may we humbly offer these simple rules:

    • Photos must be shot this weekend: Fri, Sat, or Sun.
    • You must provide the EXIF information if asked (we'll help you, if you'd like to know how to get it).
    • No photoshop alteration (we're looking to improve your skills with your camera, not software).
    • Your photograph must adhere to the theme, which will be described below.
    • Post only one photo per post, so that commentary can be easily provided for that photo. You may post more than one photo, but try to keep it to a handful.
    • Please feel free to title your photo so it can be referred to later.
    • Post your photos in this thread only. Do not start a thread in reply to this assignment. Please post your photos no later than next Wednesday.
    • And, the most important rule: have fun! We're looking to spread the joy that many of us derive from taking pictures, particularly ones that tell a story of some kind.


    This week's theme: "Harmony"


    Beyond its obvious association with music, harmony connotes agreement or accord. It can refer to a consistent, orderly, or pleasing arrangement of parts or congruity.

    What does harmony mean to you?

    It's already Friday in New York so let's quit burning daylight and get busy.

    I went riding today with the intention of going to Lake Harmony but, against my will, the roads took me to Canadensis instead. Oh well...I never did make it to the lake. Maybe next week the theme will be Wallenpaupak?

    fresh distraction

    I'm so glad you chose Harmony as a topic. Even if I can't find a suitable shot to take, my mind will be distracted from the other forums here as I search for something harmoneous.
    Blessed relief.

    I went downtown (Wash. DC) to look for harmony..........


    and all I found was Kaos! Turns out they had everything around the mall blocked off due to the Verterans Day holiday. Made a total mess of things. I had planned on taking advantage of the nice gray skys to catch some shots around The Wall and maybe a few folks visiting. Soft gray light adds the mood of the place. But No! it was swamped with folks, should have figured!

    So I headed up PA. Ave to shot a shot or two of an interesting intermix of old and new sturctures that I thought might show harmony but couldn't find any parking so had to do a snap and run shot, nice idea, crappy exicution. Gerrrrr..


    So then I headed home and then thought I might stop by the Pope-Leihey House (A Usonian house by F. L. Wright). I've always admired his work and many of building certainly encompass harmony with thier enviornment.

    So....

    Harmony of Sturcture and Nature

    Entry two

    A detail of the above...

    one of the interesting aspects of the Pope house is Wright's attention to detail, in this house he insisted that all screw heads be alined as we see below

    I hope cropping is OK, if not, remove this entry.

    harmony of function and design

    Entry Three

    After visiting the Pope-Liehey house visited my local park thinking surely I can find harmony in Nature.... but nothing really outstanding came of it, although I did take some decent shots nothing jumped out at me *sigh*

    So it wasn't until I got home some hours later that this view seemed to pop out at me....

    Amazing similarities to houses by F. L. Wright.

    I'm going to try and re-shoot this one tomorrow using a tripod.

    I tried to get a very narrow depth of field and managed to blur them all.

    I had a hard time figuring out how to frame this one and still am not happy with it.

    I don't know, I kinda like it the way it is. Having the chain slightly blurred adds an element of softness to that we don't always asscociate with the harshness of metal objects.

    The first one on the other hand would probably benifit from a reshoot to bring the flower into crisp focus.
