In print, and other musings

My photo, “Curved Pipes”, was chosen to be included in Black and White magazine’s contest issue #101, available on newsstands now. It was placed in the category Pattern/Texture (pg. 231) and is also featured in the table of contents (pg. 11), which was a nice bonus.

I have to say though, among the 8 images I submitted, I didn’t think this one had a chance. I liked it but there were a couple of others that I liked better and this one was sort of a last-minute decision to include. But I wasn’t the judge, and after getting accepted and viewing it for a thousand times, I began to like it more and appreciate it for what it represents.

This years winning image, along with the image that won last year, have kind of solidified for me the type of work that I need to be focusing on. According to my wife, my focus on unique and often strange views of items in plain sight that would go unnoticed by many are what sets my work apart. My propensity to shoot anything and everything gets in the way of that at times and I need to start setting filters when I am out shooting. But not too much where I could miss out. It’s a fine line.

    Congratulations, David! Artistic composition. I like the contrast with the background and how the pipes have a rustic sheen.

      Thanks Karen. I took the shot 2 years ago on a job site. I saw how the pipes reflected the early morning light while the moist ground remained dark and knew I had to capture it.
