Nice and Normal – Pot in the Snow

Here’s another Nice and Normal photograph. If you’d like, you can see the other images here.

I took this photo the same day as the image of my favorite fairy, which surprises me, as there was no snow on the fairy, but plenty here. I know the fairy faces South, and this pot faces North, which I know explains that but still…. (:

Anyhow, I was walking back home with my dog and my camera when we came upon this pot setting on a wall. I had never noticed it before, but the dark color against the white of the snow caught my eye, and I decided to see if I could get an interesting image.

I like this image with the soft lighting (it was late in the day and overcast), and also the strong lines of the pot against the soft lines of the background. The dark vs. light is interesting also.

I have no idea why that pot was setting there, but I’m glad it was. (:

Shot with my 105mm macro lens at f/3.2.

  3. yes, the dark vs. the light…the strong lines of the pot vs. the soft background…the inherent strength and permanence of the pot vs. the fluid transience of the snow.
