March 2014 Wallpaper

Tree and brick wall, Charleston, South Carolina
Tree and brick wall, Charleston, South Carolina

I’m going to try something a little different starting with this month’s calendar.  For the last year or so I’ve been mostly dredging up old landscape photos mixed in with a few more recent shots.  I’ve recently started to realize how much my photographic emphasis has changed over the last few years, and I find myself photographing a lot less nature and a lot more of what I call “found scenes.”  Sometimes they are scenes I find in nature, but often they are scenes I come across just walking down the street in some town I happen to be visiting.

These photos won’t necessarily be the iconic “hero shots” that I have been posting as wallpaper, but I feel like I need to be true to my own sense of what it is I happen to be seeing and shooting.  And that changes, necessarily I think, over time as I learn and grow.  Some readers may enjoy this work and others may not.  For those who like it, please say so and thanks.  For those who don’t, please feel free to let me know!

I may also add in a few abstract photos that I’ve come to enjoy.  Those also make nice wallpaper, although they may be a little different from what I’ve posted here in the past.

This particular photo was taken in Charleston, South Carolina, last winter.  For me it represents the change from winter to spring – winter from the bare branches on the trees, but spring through the green on the bricks in the background, set against a whitewashed wall that hints of color but also could be seen as representing snow.  Not in Charleston probably, but certainly in many parts of this country, even in March.

I hope everyone enjoys this little change of pace and I hope everyone has a nice March!

  1. I like it! Both your new direction in wallpapers and this particular image. Especially this particular image for the reason you state, the bare branches and the green on the wall. Nice juxtaposition.

    1. I’m very glad you approve, Cedric! It just feels right to me, and i think that conforms that it’s the right direction. And there’s something about this image I really like, a little more every time I work with it.

  2. I’m all for it, and as long as you like the changes, it’s all good! 🙂 As for the photo, I really like it. I remember seeing a few of these types of scenes in Charleston, especially near the shipyard, a number of trees planted close to whitewashed walls, their branches scraping their form onto the wall, along with the assistance of the wind.

    1. I just wish I could remember exactly where this was! I looked the last time we were there but didn’t find it. I guess I need GPS! 🙂
