Flow at Rest

By woolybill1
A floating art installation moored on the Tyne in Newcastle, "Flow" samples the varying salinity of the river water to create sound sequences via sensors dipped into glass beakers. The pitch and timbre produced by each sensor can be adjusted by vistors, making the effect virtually random, while the results are transmitted across the river to act as background music to displays in the Baltic Gallery. Mrswoolybill has treated the same subject somewhat differently over the last few days.

The exposure here was 1/100th sec. @ f1.4. Tomorrow's photograph of the same 'mechanism' is 1/4 sec.@ f5.6.

Oh yes, love the lines and curves. Lots of movement and interest. Nothing is lost by this being b/w.
What a fantastic installation. So imaginative. I'd love to see/hear it.

I can sense a masterclass in the use of aperture and it's effect on an image. Having just bought an f/1.4 lens with my new Fuji I'll be using it this way myself in the near future, the quality it shows at 1.4 is very good indeed.

So to you're image of today... the point of focus crisp and well defined, no doubt where you aimed and the focus sliding off into soft bokeh. The curving row of the little arms looks almost like a sheet of music. So tomorrow will show the difference of the extra 4 stops of aperture and how it changes the death of the focus in this image.

Tomorrow is a long way away but worth the wait I feel Bill.

I commented on Moira's ones Bill,
how I loved the ''rusty'' brown tones,
so I think you will know how my flow goes with this one !!
Good mono shot though.

I got acquainted with this wonderful contraption through the uploads of your better half Wink

I hope I don't annoy her when I say this is the most artistic image I've seen of it.

Bravo, Bill.

Now I guess i have to be very careful what I say as there's bound to be husband and wife rivalry! Suffice to say, I like it very much!

It's good that you and Moira have different ideas when it comes to photography, so we have the best of both worlds, and it's good to see an isolated part of this fascinating structure. The sensors are like the heads of birds dipping down to get a drink of water.

Excellent use of selected focus and repetitions. Has to be b/w, no colour distraction.
