Love the rich textures & soft light!
Many thanks. I really liked this peeling brick wall as a backdrop.
Me too! I’m an amateur photographer and would have seen the beauty in this scene. I think I may post some of my shots. If you join my site, you can give me feedback. Honest, please. Just keep in mind all I have to work with is an android phone.
Thanks a lot for the invitation.
Did you go to my blogsite & look around?
Yes I did. Since my main interest is photography, I gave it the most attention. And I can say that your photos are interesting.
Thank you. I’m working on expanding my horizons in new areas.
Every time I see a lantern like this, I remember a song that came out the year I was born: 1946. It was called “The Old Lamplighter”, and my mother used to sing it to me when I was a child.
Thank you very much for the link. I have never heard this song.
We’re on the same wavelength, Vova. I’ll post my similar image in a few days. Love this!
I will be looking forward to see it. Thanks.
Wow! The contarst of the wall with the ligth is amazing! Beautiful! Thank’s for share Vova Zinger.
Thanks a lot, Elvira. Every time I see an interesting lantern, I try to capture it. And when this lantern has an interesting background, I rejoice even more.
Congratulations for your excelent work!
You are welcome, Vova Zinger.
Oh I love this. Just look at this ancient wall and the lantern looks as old. Just imagine they could talk. Thank you so much for sharing Vova. Have a pawesome day, stay healthy and be safe.
Thanks a lot. We are lucky that Boston and many other cities on the American East Coast can display many of these old and still working street lanterns.
Reblogged this on ausevor.
I love this photograph – the textures, colours, the light from the lantern – and I noticed that this is an unusual photograph for you in that it doesn’t show water or sky. I may be completely wrong as I’ve only been following you for a short while but it made me wonder if it was meaningful to you in a very different way to your other photographs.
I photographed this lantern against such a background only because it seemed very interesting to me. Indeed, I love including sky and water in my photos because the sky allows me to capture amazing colors that always make for a stunning backdrop during sunrise and sunset. Water is a source of amazing reflections, which I also love to photograph. Basically, I like to photograph everything that seems very interesting to me and worth sharing with everyone.
The soft light is gorgeous with the lantern and the leaves and their colors behind it ,perfection 🙂
Many thanks. I was very pleased that, although there were modern lamps inside, they gave a quite soft light, similar to a candle or gas light.
That’s awesome because that is hard to find, especially these days. A good trick you can use of need a soft effect or a foggy effect is to breathe onto the lens and shoot a quick photo. It’s pretty neat. I discovered that accidentally taking photos in the winter, one year. It was quite humorous. I started making wild gestures and shouting excitedly about how neat a photo looked. My fiance started laughing haha
Thank you very much. I think that a sharp image is ideal for documentary photography, but for photographic memory, soft focus is sometimes more suitable.
Exactly!!! You’re welcome 🙂 I enjoy your photos very much. Have a great weekend 😊
Thank you. I wish you the same.
Thank you ☺️
The lamp looks beautiful against the wall. Is that dead Ivy on the wall? It give it character.
Many thanks. No. They are just cracks in the wall. But due to limited lighting, they look very similar.
Très belle photo! / ¡Lindísima fotografía!
Old Is golden like a star
