This one is sad and I’m not sure why. The cheerful pink with the pockmarks? The flowery curtain, that I associate with old houses left uncared for too long and even the curtains are old now?
Hmm. I think it’s as you say. Pale pink brings to mind things far removed from decay.
I feel a poem coming on.
I agree with Claudia – is it the blemishes – it’s something to do with the way you’ve framed it. Ace, anyway.
Thank you, Richard. I think the idea of pale pink and the idea of decay/dirt bring completely different things to mind. So there’s tension.
Great composition, Ashley. You captured the tension really well… gentle domesticity, decay and potentially danger.
Thank you, Jeni. And welcome. 🙂
You know I’m gonna like this one. Never get tired of these.
Thanks, John. This was in a different suburb. Unfortunately I didn’t get many usable shots; it was the middle of a very hot and bright day, the sun was high in the sky and behind me so I couldn’t really see what I was doing. Plus I was getting over-heated. Ugh!
The framing of the composition creates the aesthetic balance of positive and negative space. Symbolically it conveys the tension between order ( man made construction & numerical) and chaos ( the natural ageing and degradation process that contains internal order) . This all means it is as pretty as a picture. 🙂
Love it!! Beautiful composition!
Thank you Ellen. I don’t know how I managed to get that string of letters here before, or if you saw them. I think I must have been 3/4 asleep. Sometimes I do do stuff when I’m more asleep than awake.
