Watering Cans

Watering Cans

One of my background projects is to photograph watering cans whenever I visit somewhere new – these are the latest addition.  Watering cans are a rather banal subject but they seem to vary so much , are cared for with or without respect and they often develop ‘nests’, places where they are always left when they are not used.   I suspect there may be a tap under the wooden cover to the left….. maybe.

More Observation Really Essential

Observation, observation, and more observation – I didn’t see the white tarpaulin over the end of what seems to be some scaffolding (which I didn’t see) – I also didn’t see the yellow sign right down the end of the street – which seems to be advertising ‘Cornish Pasties’ and the picture is taken in York, North Yorkshire. (Now while I like the occasional Cornish Pasty, the sign really doesn’t fit in my aesthetic sensibilities for this shot of York.  There’s also the question of the bright light down the end of the street – but that’s a bit about timing, I don’t think it would take much to use a pedestrian to moderate the intensity a little (adding a bit of masking with a long exposure, as here).

Of course, one way round the yellow sign is to drop it to black and white but the tarp is still a problem.
