First Lesson

 

FIRST HOMEWORK:

 

DAY 1

Picture 1 Interior Exterior Space Threshold

This picture shows a special part of a house, where the interior space connects to the exterior. The glass in this building opens the interior space, destroying all boundries between livingroom and garden.

 

 

 

DAY 2

AMsterdam Image 2

This photo, which I took in front of the Reijksmuseum in Amsterdam, is a good example of how modern buildings can be connected to old ones.

 

 

DAY 3

gull-aerial-india.ngsversion.1464796066669.adapt.1900.1

Gulls soaring over the beach in Alibag, India, cast precise shadows over the sand and water, seeming to double their number. I really like the colours in this picture, especially the contrast between brown, as a very `calm´colour and the blue of the boat.

DAY 4

bandra-taj-window.ngsversion.1464796062639.adapt.1900.1

This picture is taken from the Taj Lands End Hotel in Mumbai, India. The photographer Fanil Rajgor made this photo of the Bandra-Worli Sea Link. This eight-lane, state-of-the-art cable-stayed bridge is built on Mumbai´s coastline I think the black and white contrast gives this picture a certain atmosphere and the window and the lightning in the room add a beautiful texture to this image.

DAY 5

yucatan-yellow--c.ngsversion.1467308405749.adapt.1900.1

A man’s shirt matches the golden hue of the buildings in the town of Izamal, Mexico. Situated in Yucatán, Izamal, once a Maya city, boasts an immediately noticeable characteristic: The town’s structures are all painted sunny yellow.

DAY 6

prod-yourshot-36128-8427009.ngsversion.1470132011653.adapt.1900.1

This picture is from New York, it looks like the photographer wanted to create a surreal world with the balloons in which you have several angles of view, like having several cameras showing the landscape and the astronaut.

DAY 7

prod-yourshot-1308360-8273330.ngsversion.1470132008340.adapt.1900.1

This amazing picture is from northern Pakistan, people cross this huge bridge, also known as the most dangerous bridge in the world: the Hussaini Hanging Bridge, which is extremely old and very narrow and missing many of the original wooden planks. I really like this picture, the calm colours and the amazing perspective from where it is taken.

    Very nice! I especially like the tree, it’s a VERY good drawing actually!
    Only one remark – please put together Class work and Homework, all in one post (and then delete this one). Thanks!

  2. Neko says:

    Days 2-4, excellent examples, too! Thanks and keep up the great work.

  3. Neko says:

    Day 5-6, more great examples! I would like to read more about what you think of the town painted in yellow – how you feel about this particular visual effect. As for the photo of the astronaut, very interesting, reminds me of a cool project by artist Julius Von Bismarck:
    http://juliusvonbismarck.com/bank/index.php?/projects/topshot-helmet/
    (he actually put cameras in his floating baloon and connected to the glasses he wears, so he gets to see the world from a different viewpoint).

    Also – gotta say you really know how to pick a good title! We will definitely be touching these subjects later during the year.
