Still Learning To See

More ice?!?!

As if we don’t have enough ice around here, now I’m going to post photographs I’ve made of ice cubes! No, I have not gone crazy yet. This was part of a wonderful assignment a group of photographers I work with recently gave ourselves: to photograph common objects.

While I got ice cubes, others got such interesting objects as window screen, bed sheets, and a wire whisk, among others. We each ended up not only learning a great deal but also produced some very nice photographs. The group is hanging a one-day show this Friday as part of Montpelier’s quarterly Art Walk. I can’t wait to see the show and all the interconnectedness of our individual efforts. I’ll post some photographs of the show over the weekend.

For now, these are the ice images I’ve printed and will be hanging:

  1. John, you never cease to amaze! Your sheer delight in both your friends and photographs shines through every picture! You might still be “learning to see”, but for me, you “see in all directions!” I remember some of the ice photos, but had no idea you’d tried thermal imaging. As usual, many thanks for sharing 🙂

  2. Excellent series! More ice? Yes please!! Here in the very hot and humid tropics, I can only dream of being cold and these make me sorry to have missed this winter lock down. Keep up the great seeing and working!

    The last thing I need this week is ice (the main drawback to living in southern CT as far as I’m concerned!), but these shots are great. Beautiful detail and the thermal ones are really interesting.
