Photo 101: Edge

Off out today to my nearest ‘big’ town for a bit of retail therapy and as I was driving up I thought about what to photograph for today’s theme, when I rememered there was a cool statue in the downtown area. So I parked in the nearest car park and off I went to shoot the statue with all the jaggy edges that I remembered.

Then wandering round the area further I came across some more interesting statues and street art with cool edges.

Statue2

This one makes me think of some kind of groovy snails!

Statue3

Not sure what this one is supposed to be. A metal dog? (you can probably tell I’m a wonderful art-critic!)

statue4

A flying something or other (with more cool jagged edges)

statue5

??? But it’s very cool though.

statue6

Ahh, now this one I can describe. Me as a child hiding away with my book!

statue7

Your worst nightmare. A 8ft high metal beastie….

statue8

Some sort of metal atom thingy. By this time you can probably see it had started raining. The heavens had opened and it was all thunderbolts and lightning, very very frightening.

When I got back to the car I was drookit! Drowned rat would be putting it mildly!

So mission completed I headed to the mall where even the geese were trying to get in out of the storm!

I suffered for the sake of this blogging malarkey today ye ken! But I don’t melt so it was all good fun.

        1. I was using my compact (Fuji F900exr) and the last time I was in Florida we got caught in a downpour while I was taking photographs and since then my zoom button has been sticking and hard to use. That’s why I said it’d get rusty 😉
          My big camera is a Pentak K5 which is showerproof…. but I didn’t want to lug it around the shops with me yesterday.
          Anyway explanation complete… :-p
