Litfaßsäulennummer: Number on an adertising column. The leaves got attached to the posters during recent thunder storms. | My contribution for The Daily Post’s Weekly Photo Challenge: Numbers.
These are for Paula’s photo challenge at Lost in Translation. I hope the god of small things will approve…
The pictures show details of Kochbrunnen, an octagonal building in Wiesbaden’s downtown area. Different angles, different times of the day. different days, different weather conditions: These factors account for the different moods and colours in these picures.
I metered on the columns, slightly (but consistently) overexposing them because the sandstone is quite light – except for the last frame which reflects the lighting situation of the early evening. White balance was the same for all pictures, and no post-processing was done regarding the colours.
If I ever needed proof that light is one of the most important ‘materials’ for a photographer to work with, here it is. I am sure you all already knew, but I am still kind of new to colour photography, so to acutally see how different these pictures are from one another is a bit of a surprise for me.
Thanks to Christina / Paleica for inspiring this series with her recent photo challenge.
Paleica’s Magic Letter for this week and the next is “J”, and the magic word is Jetzt (now). This is my take on “now.”
A dialogue? Maybe: These two pictures feel a bit like one person finishing another person’s sentence to me.
