The hotel poolside on holiday is for swimming, sunbathing, relaxing, reading… showing off and trying to cover up. I become restless and like to experiment with my camera.
This trio of frames capture the colours and textures of the pool and beyond – the first image rolls the layers of sky, sea, beach and pool’s edge into one. I used my macro lens and fooled it into creating the abstract, hazy sense of relaxing by the water’s edge.
They are an homage to photographic artist Mariko Evans, whose enduring trademark is the dreamy, artful frame.
Nicely dreamy! :)
3 great shots Mike, particularly like the mono.
Many thanks Clive, I appreciate that. Yes, it’s slightly more obvious what the mono is but it stands apart in some ways.
Wow I love these! A fantastic effect :)
Thank you Norma, I’m glad you like the result :) It saved me from getting bored by the swimming pool!
