I am finally getting around to setting up a gallery on the madhabitz.com website and have been running into some funny images in my archives. A body gets pretty desperate at times to find decent subject matter-- the main thing is to just keep shooting.
So here's the deal: I used to have an office at a client's place. For whatever reason, this office complex was deluged with blackbirds for several months out of the year. To get to your car across the parking lot, you had to use an unbrella... because if you didn't you were sure to end up with a few ploppers in your hair (ewww!)
So anyway, back to a photographer's desperation: some of those ploppers were pretty elaborate, some incredibly graceful. Line, layers, shapes, values. Some of those ploppers had it all. I did a whole series of images using them .... and yeah, they are sorta "matchy" with mirroring, but there you go.
