The Way Out
no images were found
Honestly, sometimes I have the hardest time naming images. I think I might start naming everything “untitled” with a sequential number. It makes for a boring blog, and be pretty bad for SEO, but at least it would save me 10 minutes trying to come up with something clever.
Anyway, this is another shot from my Fisheye visit to the Stone Mill a couple of months ago. Its a side stairwell, not often used, but it has a lot of character.
Haha… I just name them whatever comes to mind the first time I see the image. Even if it doesn’t have to do with the image! 🙂
Love the image. I’d like to see it with the railings meeting on at the same point on the side of the image, but that’s just my type-A thing going on…
You shoot so much urbex, you have the same problem I have…how many ways can I name a morning sunrise in the desert? 🙂
I’m going for song titles lately…helps a bit.
Love the image and the fishy…
Great detail. I didn’t notice the railings until I read Rob’s comment, so I guess it wasn’t an issue for me. I really like the light play in this scene.
Coming up with titles drives me nuts, sometimes I just give up and just identify the location or subject. That’s better for SEO anyway, so even when I can think of a title I now sometimes also put the subject in the post title for the SEO benefits, like I did today. And about once every couple of weeks or so you think of a title that’s just perfect and takes no effort at all. I love those days.
I’ve also been stealing lines from poems, which is like Mike’s song title idea but more pretentious.
I also love the fisheye here – it creates a pleasing distortion without looking completely unnatural.
I just love your work, Bob, it’s a huge source of inspiration for me. There is so much to take in and enjoy with today’s image, the details and textures here are truly wonderful. I especially love the weathering of the wood panels, I can’t help but wonder what weathered them so… there must be 1,000 stories to this.
Sweet use of the fisheye! I always write the blog entry first and usually that sparks the title, unless it’s just so obvious out of the gate.
Stair whisperer strikes again. Love the fish
Great shot. I try not to worry about the names too much. Seems like the picture itself is more important.
got the same problem with titles, it’s always a 10 minutes creativity moment… Often I decide for a title not strictly pertaining to the photo.
Anyway, very nice perspective and tones, like this.
Photographers like you and Brian Matiash have totally changed my attitude about HDR. This is fantastic.
