Weekly Photo Challenge – Angular Sculpture

Abstract Angles                                      2014©photography by Isadora

“A sculpture is just a painting cut out and stood up somewhere.”
François de la Rochefoucauld quotes ~

Visiting Albany, New York in May, I came across this striking metal sculpture.

Most noticeable were the obvious lines and angles which created an impressive

impact against the linear building just behind it.


 Xiao Yu asks, “What does angular mean to you?”

It might mean the corner on which you live or the intersection of sea and sky at a 180 degree angle.

Angular also offers a chance to shoot from an entirely new perspective:

from above, below, or even from the margins of the fray. Above all, have fun!

[New Post] Cousin It

Inside the Mind of Isadora:

Olivia and Oscar are jammin’ ….. 😎
Stop by and watch them improvise some cool tunes … 🎺 🎺 🎼

Who needs a cousin it when you have orples running around? And to add to that scenario, check this out: Izzy grows trumpet trees on her blog , ‘isadoraartandphotography’.  It’s a good thing, too, because those trumpets look pretty heavy. These two are obviously natural musicians. I guess when you’re orples, once you’ve transformed from oranges into mobile little characters, nothing is impossible.

The Orples  groov'in to the tunes.

Your Throne Awaits

An artistic friend of mine has always dabbled in creating things out of wood. She’s a great admirer creative wood items.

This Throne Chair occupies a space in her living. No - it is not comfortable. But, she loves taking photos of people sitting in it when you come to visit.

Flower yellow bromeliad.webGolden Dawn                       2014©photography by Isadora

~~~ “We can only appreciate the miracle of a sunrise if we have waited in the darkness”  ~~~


In this week’s challenge, show us your minimalist photos. Find an interesting texture, color, or silhouette. Maybe there is a story that you can tell with your minimalist photo. Try an interesting angle with your composition to turn a traditional scene into a minimalist one, by eliminating as much of the extra detail in the background as possible. Make sure you’ve got good contrast, and your focus is nailed on the part of the photo that is telling the story, such as the tiny hand in the photo above.

A perspective looking down, from the top of a beautiful circular staircase.
The basement in your grandmother’s house that frightened you as a child — and even now, as an adult.
A shot of an unforgiving sky and heavy clouds, ready to unleash a storm.
