The colours, the smell, the atmosphere… THIS is my place in the world.

I really like the lights and shadows in this photograph, it is a great example of how b&w can be as powerful as color. With just the shadow over his eyes and the cigarette’s one on his neck, the image also has a nice contrast of geometries.       A good portrait has to catch the eye of anyone who looks at it, and the gaze of that man seems to get through the camera.

I don’t really know what does this combination of colours have, but I love when that bluish grey and earthy tones meet.

I realised that I have many of these photos in my files, some of them are mine and others are from different websites, and I felt like I should do a set of photos about that special combination.

Actually, it is warm and cold at the same time. The grey includes from the flat surface of the steel to a foggy sky, while the other tone is a mix of another grey, orange, brown… so natural and organic.

Definitely, colours can be really powerful, even if they are as smooth as those, which are warm and cold, natural and artificial, calm and brave.

        Another post about colours, but this time, electric ones.

In the first photo, the contrast of light and dark parts is highlighted by the use of complementary colours, drawing with neon lights over him. By the way, it is his expression what gives the photograph all its meaning.       In the second one, we can’t overlook the striking colours, but once more, it is the object itself which combined with the lights gives the full meaning, in this case, the citric tones seems to be sour, and the fresh pulp looks set to explode.

 It is cold, eerie… and even creepy, but I can feel the water flowing, hear the leaves falling one by one to the river, and imagine the touch of this wooden frame.

Although some photographers tend to escape from central compositions, I think in this case it was a great choice: the perspective of the river gives the picture depth, framed by the dark trees and the river, while the frame of the window sets a point of reference in the foreground. Moreover, the human element gives the photograph something to connect with: the atmosphere is “completed” by the feelings we believe she is going through. Just with her pale hands, the girl behind the frame is the cold light of the image. Without her, the river would seem lifeless.

Nothing to do with the previous image, this one conveys warmth and happiness.

The sea behind her takes us to an island somewhere in the Pacific, and the yellow umbrella resembles the sunlight, which is, in reality, in front of the woman.

I believe the sun is the most important element in this photograph: the rods of the umbrella, the concentric circles of the hat, and even the direction of her gaze seem to represent sun rays, guiding our own gaze to her eyes.

Not just the invisible force, but the aesthetics involved in those pictures caught my eye.

These photo-montages use the contrast between a deep black and light greys while playing with human figure and “forces”, making us wonder if our strength comes from our head (which, by the way, wasn’t removed from the shadows).

Once more, the mix of organic and geometric figures is what I like the most, including a third component this time, that we can all appreciate even without seeing it.
