A Recurring Theme
Like many photographers I am drawn to windows and doors as a photographic subject. After reviewing some images I took this week I thought about how they have been a strong recurring theme in my work. In March of last year I wrote about windows in my post, ‘Exploring Themes’ and I recall that my first favorite photo in that B&W I was that of a window. I am drawn to all the ideas that windows and doors can represent; looking in, looking out, coming and going, the history, the lives that lived beyond those windows and doors, etc. I like to explore reflections in the glass that can enhance the image and add interest. Below are two window images shot last week at some historical sites in Berks County, PA. The interior shot, from Hopewell Furnace was created buy combining five exposures. This was necessary in my intent to get a correct exposure on both sides of the window, preventing the trees outside, from being blown out. The second shot, from a historic home in Morlatton Village, was created by combining three exposures which seem to have helped in a situation where the light was fading. In conclusion I think about how many photos of windows and doors I have taken, and will take, before I am done!
