Vermont Noir

This is from another creativity-enhancing exercise pursued by my local photography circle, like the pitcher-portion pictures of last month. This time the key is to so find an object and photograph it occupying each of the four corners of the frame—presumably while still offering an interesting composition. It turns out to be harder than it sounds if you stick to that last qualification. It also presupposes agreement on what constitutes an object. My colleagues might not agree with my assessment that the landing of one of my favorite old fire escapes qualifies. They might also wonder about my “German angle” framing. When the sun broke out for about twenty minutes the other day, a rare event for northern New England this time of the year, I raced outside to give it a try. Something about fire escapes just smacks of old Hollywood film noir flicks, so I went for high contrast black and white, off-kilter angles, expressionist framing...the whole nine yards. Too bad Robert Mitchum was unavailable.
