Ladder Pattern

ISO1600 50mm f/11 1/4000sec

It feels so great to have the camera back in my hands!!! I’ve missed it over the last 4 days, and felt more alive today than I have in some time! At times if feels like being taken down hard by the seasonal flu can be a wonderful blessing, because when you enter back into the mindset of good health you start to look at things in a fresh perspective again. With that comes a renewed energy, and I my friends definitely have renewed energy.

If you didn’t get a chance to read my post from earlier today I’ll give you a nutshell version… There’s a crap ton of excitement on its way for all my badass followers!! More guest bloggers, Collaborations with other blogs, Book Reviews, more Photographic Inspiration posts, and a bunch of other stuff that Im not going to tell you about just to keep you on the edge of your seat! There how do you like them Butternut Squashes? … what thats not how it goes? Apples? Really?But Squash is so delicious! I digress.. And yes tons more horrible jokes to keep you in a state of calm panic!

I love the harsh shadows and rough textures in this scene, however there was one thing that drew me in more than anything else. Im going to wait and see if anyone can figure out what it is. It could be very obvious.. we will have to see.

  1. great image. It looks like a railing of some kind, on a rooftop (photo taken looking down). Am I close? 🙂

  2. Perhaps it is what appears to be a shadow of a bird pointing toward the railing?

  3. I like the little burst of colour from the edge of the ladder. Is that it?

  4. Nice choice of subject … well done

  5. I’ll have to wait to see what the one thing is, but the picture is excellent.

  6. the geometery………………

  7. I love the different textures of this picture. Great job! 🙂

  8. Have you tried this in B&W? The texture on the wall is very cool. Love it!

    • I did try is in B&W, but liked the warmth of orange throughout the image. Im pretty sick of winter by now so any feeling of summer I can get Im sticking with it haha. Thanks 🙂

  9. Glad you feeling better, was wondering whats with the sudden disappearance… oh, great image btw 🙂

    • Thanks! Yea the very little time I spent on the computer was put towards answering emails for work so I wasn’t able to get on to keep everyone updated. Im back and ready for action however! Thanks for the kind comment on the image 🙂

  10. Great shot..glad you are feeling better.

  11. Before I read any comments….

    It looks like there is a profile in the concrete.

  12. I suggest these settings next time:

    50mm 1/125 f8 ISO100

    You’re handholding a short lens and there’s no action so there’s no reason to crank your shutter so high as it highly effects your print quality when you need to then compensate at 1600 ISO instead of shooting at 4 or 1.

    Here’s something you mind find helpful.
    equivalent exposure value chart

    “equivalent exposures” is what to research if you’re interested.

    Good composition. I like the shot.

  13. I was going to say the geometric angles created by the fire-escape and the shadow but it looks like someone already got a no out of you on that one. I hope you do reveal your answer even if no one guesses.
    Thanks for following my blog. I found yours and am really liking reading and seeing your posts.

    Beautiful image!! I like the coposition and use of shadow!

  15. Great shot. I think we all see different things because we all see things differently. That’s what makes art so wonderful. I see a bottle pouring a shadow stream.

  16. Simple yet so eye catching. Superb.

    This is very striking… it’s interesting how the vertical lines of the ladder shadow are not straight, while the rung shadows are perfectly straight/symmetrical…

  18. The rust against the wall is what makes it for me. Nice.

  19. I love seeing patterns like this in shadows and reflections!
