Thematic Photographic # 164 It's in the Details

THIS IS A THEMATIC PHOTOGRAPHIC POST

             Carmi is giving us a wide open topic for this week's TP theme......
                                                  "It's in the details...."

...and for this post I offer, various precious gems and metals in detail......even edible ones...


                                The fog was quite thick this last Saturday morning......



Broad daylight and not a soul in sight - Glass and metal media

Graced by an artist's touch..... it's always in the details that the artist reveals the story.....

"Don't fence me in" - chain link fence.....

"Bent of Wood" - by artist, Tony Cragg - Strange stainless steel sculpture.




All wild and wonderful...pumpkins and gourds.......Edible Media

So have I tempted you to play along too?
then go here

Lovely pictures ...loved the frescoes and pumpkin alien faces. The fence would look fab in B/w ...just my viewpoint. Why don't you try the weekend in B/W, some of these have good contrast...converted pictures are accepted....http://blackandwhiteweekend.blogspot.com/

Limar said...

Love your pictures! The head is fantastic :)

Chain link is always interesting to photograph. And I love the colors on the gourds.

Little Nell said...

That head sculpture is strange but beautiful. I like the frescoes too.

Karen S. said...

Reka Sang- Thanks, I know exactly what you mean about B/W Carmi has gotten us on that theme, and I play with old Sepia and B/W from my family and other collections...I've shot some recently and will again....a few years ago I just didn't like the way they developed my B/W photos....but you gave a great inspiration, thanks!

Limar The Bent Head artist is British no wonder I like him!

Writer, it's funny you say that, a few months ago when I shot that chain link fence, I was trying to shoot the newer, not so lovely chain linking to appear better and striking against such a stunning old crumbles of what once was a great stone building!

Little Nell it's so the time for frescoes too! I shot another one of his sculptures that day too!

Great photos, as always! I actually like the gourds best. The different shades of yellow and the different textures, all from something so simple. Also, the urban one with no people was stark, and a bit sad in a way. Your photos have so much variety and depth. They entertain me and make me think! You have the Gift!

Titanium said...

Love the depth of perspective on the chain link fence... the lines somehow draw the eye right in and to what lies beyond.

Alan Burnett said...

A great set of images. I really will try and join in this week : I will go search through my archives.

bruce said...

excellent pictures...

and i loved the captions too!

Alexia said...

Those gourds/pumpkins are beautiful - they just glow with colour. and all the other shots are interesting too - a great collection, Karen :)

Aunt Snow said...

Great photos. What is the painted ceiling? I love the texture of the gourds and the brilliant color.

Bob Scotney said...

Another fine set of pictures, Karen. But why is it that a chainlink fence looks more appealing that a stainless steel sculpture? Bent wood would need to be in wood for me.

EG Wow said...

I like the details you've shown!

Max said...

Awesome pictures. I really like the chain link fence with the background out of focus. And the metal wood thing. Way cool.

Steve Gravano said...

Great set of photos, I especially like the fog photo that started the set.

Carmi said...

I'm speechless. Where do you FIND so much great stuff to shoot? You're a storyteller with a camera in her hand...and we get to follow you around. Coolness!

Vicki said...

Great choices and variety for the detail theme!

Bob S. and Limar...Bent Wood sculpture by Tony Kragg is a British visual artist specializing in scluptures does create in many medias!

Karen S. said...

Carmi- thanks! Actually I had all these photos already, but I do often take photos about your theme....right after learning what it is...the very awesome thing about taking the random photos that I do, they now find homes very often in your themes! That is coolness!

Karen S. said...

Ticklebear- Thank you! I have to go check out your "365 Days" again...you always have the best photos EVER!

TICKLEBEAR said...
