For something different – this week’s Photography Challenge is to place a grid upfront in photos, rather than using an imaginary one to help compose a pleasing picture. I had a couple I’ve taken recently at home.
One is the ‘roof’ of our new shadehouse (aka “The Umbratorium”), and the other a gridded frame I’m using as a moodboard as I daydream about repainting our lounge.
I’m in Canberra for a few weeks, and took the camera out and about on the weekend – mainly to take pictures of Juniper, who is now two years old – but I found some grid patterns, as well.
We went to Weston Park to a miniature railway – lots of grids there! Juniper had two rides then cried all the way home, because she didn’t want to leave “Thomas…!” I found the drainage hole grid at one of the markets we went to, and the graffiti wall and gridded window where we parked our car to visit the famous Bus Depot Market. Juniper has decorated the screen door on to the balcony of her home – which gives the chalk an interesting texture.
And finally, here is miss Juniper herself, enjoying a slice of rainbow birthday cake, with the grid of floor tiles as background.
