Feelin’ blue at A82 (Just Now)

Filed under: Rex — Rex @ 17:15

I think I could do a padlock series!



  1. Pictures-of-padlocks are a subset of whatever category includes pictures-of-peeling-paint. Fascinating to try, difficult to pull off. Give the series a go.

  2. I am usually slightly averse to ‘texture’ photos but have waited to see whether this begins to appeal. I like the peek-a-boo glimpse of the unpainted wood and am totally flummoxed by the “NoA82”. I can’t work out why a main road is posing as a house number!

    While I like the colours of the blue and rust, something about the composition doesn’t quite gel: it seems as though it wants to be square but isn’t.

  3. As somebody who uses, and depends upon, the A82 I have to lodge a complaint about this photo.

    Of course, peeling paint is something that you should pull off.

  4. If a series then pack some brasso to polish up the name-plates. Like John, the crop ratio sits a little uneasy on my eye and I do want it to be square. But then what do you lose or gain? A difficult series to pull off I’d hazard so I wish you well. Seems such an easy piece of subject matter but as most I see are studies of rust rather than environment I hope the series is a little more wider than closer.

  5. Colour that pops, highlighting the rust of the lock. Neglected paint and lock seem incongruous with the bright number plates.
