Sails in Profile

This is a photo I took yesterday before the thing I was photographing.

I think that this shot decontextualises The Sydney Opera House.
This still is The Sydney Opera House; it appears as such, but it also feels like something different.

I really like how the light falls on the sails, but admittedly I had to do a bit of work to bring that forward. I think it helps to carry attention across the sails in a sort of “back and forth” manner.

This is my submission into the one hundred-and-thirty-second Lens-Artists Photo Challenge.

The theme for this one is “Striped and Checked“.

I feel that this image fits the challenge due to the striped pattern the tiles help to provide.

The challenge is hosted by four people and cycles weekly:

Week 1 – Patti

Week 2 – Ann-Christine aka Leya

Week 3 – Amy

Week 4 – Tina

This week’s challenge is curated by Leya. The next one will be curated by Amy.

The challenges are pretty fun and there’s a lot of room for interpretation that doesn’t get in the way of enjoyment. If you’re into photography, then I suggest participating, or at the least checking out what other people are submitting.

I hope you enjoy.

    You’re right SH, the opera house is the opera house no matter which piece of it one focuses on. The faint appearance of the checked pattern makes one study the image even more.

    Good one S.H. I like the isolation of the sails, without the rest of the structure. Excellent.
