While I have been a little less than mobile I have not been taking very many pictures, so I have been looking at, deleting and tagging old images.
During this time I started thinking about the kinds of pictures I take - and as I have posted more than a few skies over the last couple of years I started looking at these pictures.
Without being the basis of some kind of photographic monograph I think I can see at a number of different styles of picture in my collection.
1. Pretty skies.
This may not be typical of these types of picture because it contains people. But the basic idea here is it is the sky itself is the interest.
2. Mood skies
I think the main point of these images is that the sky may not be the central part of the image. In this case the sky is almost uniform, but the presence of the rainbow and figure (hello, Sal!) and the general tone combine to form the picture.
3. Skies where the sky is absent or not really the point.
This image works (assuming it does) because of the colour and shape of the chimney, I think the sky is just the colour that makes the chimney interesting.
I think I have been indoors too much!
You can find more skies at Sky Watch Friday. Enjoy the pictures.
