32 Hopeman Beach

By hwatt  
Hopeman, Moray, Scotland.
I love colour so you can imagine my delight at finding this wonderful beach hut among a row of other equally jolly painted examples. I wanted it to look as incongruous and childlike as possible so I photographed it two dimensionally, head on, just like you would find in a nursery book or a childs drawing of a house and then made sure the backdrop was as unspectacular and bland as possible. Any shadows would have complicated the picture adding unwanted 3 dimensionality so I waited for the sun to go in and the shadows to soften. The hut is deliberately placed as symmetrically in the frame as possible to further enhance the childlike appearance. Oh yes needless to say I took a lot more shots using the graphic lines too, I might make up a little portfolio.

Pentax 67II 90-180 zoom, polariser, f/11 at 1/30 sec, Velvia.

I think if I lived nearby I would make a project out of shooting this fantastic hut in all sorts of circumstances.

fantastic colour, brilliant spot Smile
Not for the wall then? A slight deviation from the normal beautiful landscapes. Certainly must have given your sensor a fright when this image hit it.

Hi mate,

That's a new one! Haven't they done a great job in painting it, and you in capturing it.
