When I was away recently, I was intrigued one night by the view from my porthole when docked in Havana. May of the buildings at the port were old disused warehouses, or so it seemed. But this dilapidated building had a bright light shining at the far side, all night as far as I could see.
Of course, I love dilapidation and decay, so I had to take an image:
ISO 1250, 1/25th second, f1.8 handheld…not too bad, eh? A modicum of eerie atmosphere…as a monochrome image, which I might try, it could be a film noir still….
…of course! I love your shots of these motifs.
Tee hee….I think you are not averse to a bit of abandonment and decay yourself!
Hehe…I think we will have a good time in July😉
I do hope we will!
Worth the shot, Sue, and it worked well. For 1250 ISO, it is very good.
Best wishes, Pete.
Thanks, Pete! But it doesn’t look so good ‘blown up’….the noise very visible!
Love this. If you are enamored of dilapidation, I will send you a selfie…ha, ha!
Oh, I’m dilapidated enough!
You never rest! But I can understand why this was irresistible. Darkness and mysterious lights through a pothole – the stuff of noir indeed.
Oh, I do rest, too much….but this had me taking a peek now and again, Meg!
Hope you had a wonderful trip Sue. I agree this is a very eerie effect.
I had a great trip, Sue! Glad you like my eerie…
Love this! I have a thing for window shots and this is so intriguing!
Thank you, Susan!
….I wonder if it would be a good prompt for a story!
It does start to make you wonder what was going on in there.
That is mysterious.
A fine piece of decay, Sue. And mysterious too.
Thank you, Tish….a bit of decay, wrapped in a mystery, that’s good by me
Such a moody, evocative photo. Loved it, Sue.
Ooh, thanks, Sandra! Any good for a story prompt?? 😀
Somebody’s late night workshop? Or something more sinister? 🙂 🙂
Well, I have to say my mind veered towards the latter, Jo!
Yes, very moody, I like it a lot.
Thank you, Amy!
We will quietly back away and not even consider the word “smuggling”?
Image loaded with suggestions and potential
😳 image definitely loaded with suggestions and potential for those of the imaginative or suspicious inclination!!
Or it is only what it is 🙂
Terrific image, Sue …. you know how to handle light and dark shades.
Oh, it was just mesmerising, Vivi!
It doesn’t look noisy. Nicely done, Sue! I like the mood.
Well, it’s OK small size, but you do notice it on a larger image….but I think it’ll do’ Glad you like the mood, Paula… (By the way, what’s B&W Sunday this week??
The easiest one of all (after and before with a complete freedom in the choice of subject and matter – just has to be two images one in colour and the other in black and white (sepia is accepted too) 😀 You approve?
Yep, that’ll do nicely!
I can even tell you the theme for next TS if you want 😀
Next Thursday we are doing “section” 🙂
Section? A selected section of an image? Or do I need to be sectioned…..
Aha, there you are. You don’t need to be sectioned at all. I meant a section of something as in crop – very simple indeed 🙂
That should be an easy theme too.
Just keep it to yourself for the time being. I want others to sweat 😆 😉
Just depends on whether anyone reads this thread…..
I was kidding of course when it is all out in the open 😀
What? No other questions? All clear?
Just sent you another question….
