A few shots I took in West Alexander, PA on my way to work this morning. Since I was going to work I couldn’t spend too much time looking for details so I worked somewhat too quickly and just shot things that caught my eye. Unfortunately, composition seemed to take a backseat at times 😦 Photos processed with Topaz Black and White. All with Pentax K20D, DA17-70.
Great set of grungy photos! I love peeling paint and reflections in old windows. The lace curtains behind dirty, broken glass communicates a somber message. Vintage-style processing enhances the photos.
I thought the processing fit the “old” mood. The town is quaint but a little ragged on the edges (perfect for me). There is more detail there to be found and I hope I can revisit soon.
I enjoyed the processing of these, and “inside outside” in particular.
Composition took a backseat? I disagree. These are amazing. You focus on the unusual, the atypical view. Beautiful stuff.
I’m inclined to agree with paulaturner, but if composition really did take a back seat, it sure didn’t have much leg room.
