Red and Dead

ND – Night, Dark, Bluer every day.

I love warm colours, and Red tops the list. I’m also really quite attracted to things that are broken or decaying; a natural time-induced ageing with little help from man to rectify it brings out a beauty all its own. Both these images are harsh but beautiful views of property left to the wims of the elements, but featuring Red as a standout colour.

This shot was taken in a side street in Wroclaw, Poland. The building is a bar, and the sign that i cropped out to the left advertised that Tyskie was the Piwo (Beer) of choice inside. It’s a really good bar by the way 😉

One of the funny things about this shot is the coordination of the colour scheme (after post production) to mimic the Polish National Flag.

This little boat was moored on the River Thames in Kingston, Surrey, UK. It’s actually in a better state than the bar above, but is more striking for the strong contrast and saturated red.

About nakedigit

I have legs and a camera. I also occasionally use a passport. The camera with my brightest lenses can almost (almost) see in the dark. So the only thing stopping me from putting it all together regardless of where and when i am is, well, me really! However, when i don't completely muck it up the results may end up here on this blog and also my Flickr page. I now Twitter and a website is coming... ND August 2010
