• Bit gruesome this bit.
  • This area was actually covered by a shred of weed, though it blended in neatly in B&W.
  • Felt natural to leave this empty bar at the top - it gave it a sort of museum feel, somehow.

Still Life (Dead Duck), Grand Union Canal

Newer Older

Not sure about this one. Taken back at the start of the year, more out of horror than anything else. I was very sad to see it actually. Never seen a dead duck before. It seemed wrong not to take a picture. And having taken it, wrong not to post it. So here it is.

Lots of cloning to remove spots from the surface of the canal. I wanted a sort of "Han Solo frozen in carbon" effect.

Hope everyone is having a great week.

    Pretty intense, but it really is a compelling image. Dead things and I don't go well together, but this has power in it!

    I think the sadness is conveyed through the image. It does appear just frozen in time. nicely processed to evoke a mood.
