Angles 3: Portraits

A frontal picture of a face can be a great image but picturing with an angle adds some perspective and depth. And sometimes I also play with colours and textures …

Weekly Photo Challenge: Angular

The word ‘angular’ seems to associate people/bloggers.photographer/etc. with some kind of mathematics in which angles (‘disambiguation’) plays an important role in the picture.

But there is also a JAVA-script named ‘Angular’; there is angular displacement, angular velocity, angular frequency, angular momentum, angular acceleration, etc.

These ‘angulars’ all have ‘movement’ and ‘dynamics’ in common (BTW; there are also quite a few ‘angulars’ in anatomy but, laid-back as I am today, I leave these to the anatomists)

Here is my interpretation of this week’s Photo Challenge:

Have a good look … (it’s a bit of a refined optical thing). There are no angles, or are there?

Sculpture

At the moment the Town of Hermanus in the Western Cape is celebrating the FynArts Festival with exhibitions in the old Synagogue and private galleries plus lectures, storytelling, concerts and arty South African movies next to open workshops of local artists. And the quality of the works is superb and provides visitors with a good impression of  the (contemporary) South African Art Scene. The sculpture (bronze) in the pictures is made by Ian McCallum and photographed from different angles it shows different natural light influenced spheres…

The Amazing Sunset 4: Winged friends

The date is Sunday 12 May 2013 and the time somewhere between 6 and 8 PM. Location: a hidden spot along the lagoon near the village. Together with friends and a great colored family from Mount Pleasant (who also discovered this spot…) we experienced one of those numerous amazing sunsets our area has to offer. In and around the lagoon is an abundance of bird life and it is hard to make pictures without any winged friends in it… This serie provides you with a visible idea but no picture can match the experience of sitting, chatting and watching on the spot. I shot just over 200 images and only 19 survived my first selection.

Part 4 is dedicated to our winged friends in the lagoon; photographed during different moments in time and angles.
