The Colors of Ireland

While most of the tour was spent with the wild Irish landscape, we did have opportunity to shoot some in the charming small towns from time to time.  This little town had lots of color as most do. Rather than capture the entire building or street scene,  I instead tried to distill the scene down to its essence.  This is my take.

    It’s wonderful. Ol Dan is really rubbing off on you! My favorite element are the red blocks. Both colorful, and rhythmic. Well found!

    JBDS, Inc.! Only you can take a picture of a blue painted wall and still find Barclay Clouds within!

    Seeing beyond the simple yet complex image, there is that additional illusion artistic quality to this image that the window is floating in the sky and the bricks resembling red flags upon a flagpole.

    Beyond photography and a work of art JB! Print this one BIG, especially for the projects you are working on.

    I love the colors and the rhythm of the red bricks. However I am always reluctant to crop a window through the glass. Any guidelines for this? Thanks.

      Fait comment Sherry. I too did not want to do so but my choices led me in to this as my final decision. I think I would agree that leaving a mullion would have been better if possible..
