Wall things... by Chinga

Wall things...

The first two look a lot like the work of the late.....Sir Walter Ritchie.......he was a pupil of Eric Gill?

Walter Ritchie lived and worked in my home town, there are exampes of his work in Coventry a City Centre, he also created brick sculpture panels for many local schools and public buildings.

Try Googling his name.

STREET PHOTOGRAPHY at it's very best......all the components, including the reflections add to your story, beautifully converted then processed into a wonderful whole.

Your title is both witty and apt.....so....full marks from me.

Harvey and Adrian.

Hi, Mollycat,

The darker one of your moggies, brings back happy memories of the 16 or so years we enjoyed with Jasper, our Chocolate Brown Havana ....... A real gentleman of a cat, even after another 17 yeas have past we still miss him.....

We have an elderly Birman now....

Light in the Darkness by Andysnapper

Light in the Darkness

I like this a lot, but think that it has bags more potential, tucked away if the original RAW shot has been saved.
Your conversion and post-processing here are very good but there is lots more to tease out.....Why am a I saying this?

Because I watched the YouTube documentary on Ansell Adams yesterday, readily and freely available and well worth watching and absorbing......his darkroom-made prints of the Yosemite National Park are to die for.

The documentary thumbnail is easily recognised.....it is of billowing clouds.

Please watch it and be inspired.....can't wait to see the resultsSmile

Sash windows and Sash Window Catches, once formed a fairly large part of my working life as a carpenter/ joiner, the replacement of broken sash cords was a regular task in the years following the neglect caused by WWII.
It was good practice to replace all four cords at one go, although customer sometimes couldn't see that, the work involved for replacing just one cord is almost the same as for all of them.

Those beautifully made cast brass Georgian and Victorian window catches always seemed to work as long as the window was maintained.

The Sash Window has proven over the centuries to be a fantastic design, always protected from the weather in its reveal, and always in the dry, droughty to today's standards yes, but a good draught was required then to keep coal fires drawing properly.

A very evocative shot.................Thanks for the memories.
