Monochrome Monday: Succulent Sedum

At the local farmer’s market this weekend, this sedum caught my eye as an excellent monochrome composition candidate.

Antique Atlas Bicycle Composition Study

This rack of antique Atlas bicycles at Golden Oldies in High Point, North Carolina, was an excellent subject for a composition study.  For each composition, I shot a range of exposures from f8 up to f16. The f-stop and lens focal length used is appended to the end of the title.

The first three compositions were shot with a Tamron 15-30mm lens.  The last was with my Nikon 28-300mm.

I looked up this brand; it’s from India and is one of the top global bicycle manufacturers.  Several of the seats are from the Hero bicycle brand, also a top manufacturer in India.  This suggests these were sold and used in India.

Antique Trellis Abstracts

I’ve been spying the menagerie of antiques outside this cool antique store in High Point, North Carolina called Golden Oldies.  They sell mostly to the international home furnishing industry, based here in High Point.  Last week, I finally found a little time for a late afternoon visit.  These rusty iron trellises were my first subject of study.
