Venice Revisited 5
Water is an interesting thing. As a photographer, I look at it as a liquid mirror. It moves, ripples, and reflects the environment of around it. The canals of Venice were a constant symphony of colors, shapes, and light. Every now than and then I'd find myself looking down at the water and see interesting abstract images and I'd snap a picture of them.
Reviewing these pictures I noticed, not only the colors in the originals, but the potential of the light and dark values of those colors. So I experimented with converting them to grayscale. I'm pleased with the results. I've posted them here to show the side-by-side results. They seem to be abstract studies that convey the movement of the water. The color versions remind me of Abstract Expressionists of the 1950's, Clifford Still, Franz Kline, Willem deKooning, etc.
