Worn


It’s fun how things happen.

I was complaining to myself today for having lost a train by 10 seconds. I had to wait for another 10-12 minutes for the next one (how impatient can we get!).

While waiting, I started to walk along the track side, looking at some small details from an old train parked there. I became aware of all that worn metal, showing rust and plenty of traces of time and use…

And short after that, I was already thinking on this new project… It is an old picture of a local Skateboarding ramp that starts it and gives me the guides for the rest of the project though. I took this one with an Iskra 6×6 folding RF camera some months ago, using Fuji Acros 100.

For some reason I always thought this picture deserved something more than being a stand-alone, so, from now on is the one opening my Worn project.

Not a bad compensation for losing a train 😉

  3. I thought this was a black and white landscape at first. This photo has so much detail and just enough abstraction for repeated gazeability hehe..

  4. i love an image that nudges me to look again, and wonder! i saw a landscape too, at first glance: a slope, strung with lights, rising into the clouds.
    this is going to be a brilliant series…

  5. Andy, Lynn, I’m so glad you both liked so much the landscape ! 🙂

    Seriously, thanks a lot for your feedback and comments. Both your blogs are such a great source of inspiration and a delight for me to visit regularly. I really hope I’ll be able to keep up with the expectations on this series.

  6. Hi Oscar

    You have another winner. This has so many tones! I am sure this would look wonderful as a print hanging on the wall. If it can look so nice on a monitor wonder how gorgeous it will look as a print 😕

  7. Ah! So that’s where the comments link is. It’s invisible!

    Pero, vaya, qu? buena foto te has echado aqu?. Muy “blotink-like”. Al principio cre? que era un tipo de cyanotipo o algo por el estilo. Ser mucho mucho good. 😉

  8. Sudeep, Gabriel, thanks a lot for your comments gents ! 🙂

    Lynn, I’m sort of lost with that blotink-like thing as well, so don’t worry too much. Lol !
