Five Weeks Gone

Forgive me readers, for I have sin... er... neglected my blog. But frankly, there's not been much to talk about. I've been busy, doing a lot over on the model railroad site (http://www.on30guy.com), and beyond that, work has been sucking the life out of me. Hipstamatic, Yoona Lens, Blanko ? Film, No Flash

But look. I made a photograph. Yesterday. For the first time in weeks.

I posted it on a couple of forums, and it actually got responses. People  liked it, and talked about things like use of positive and negative space and such. Frankly, I didn't think about any of those things when I pointed my iPhone up at the ceilings of the Mall in Columbia. I saw an interesting juxtaposition of textures, of hard and soft light and lines, and I saw some interesting angles.

I hardly ever think about using positive and negative space in my photography, though looking over some of my work, it's clear that I "use it" in my compositions. I honestly don't really understand it all that well -- at least not as well as things like the rule of thirds and the rule of odds and use of contrast and color -- so it will be something that I will consciously work on.
