Objects in space may seem familiar unless they are shot in an unusual way or mismatched in their context. Statues are relatively rare in Welsh graveyards and they tend to be quite plain compared with the Baroque or Realist sculpture you find in Europe. However, what would otherwise be a simple image can be boosted by taking a single meniscus lens and reversing it. It's an easy job using a 1950s' medium format camera.


Overalls and Underpants

Overalls and Underpants strikes me as the only possible title for this shot. The ratio of sky to fence is not quite 5:8 but it is close enough to pass as an example of the Golden Ratio of classical design. The subject and its context is irrational yet also quite natural; after all, if you are drying clothes on a fine spring day the garden fence is as good a place as any.
