Hide behind the Hide - Monomad Challenge

in Black And White2 months ago

Hail to the Hive!

As is becoming part of my new routine I lke to explore the general area near where we moor Badger the Narrowboat and this evening I took I walk around one of the old gravel pits that is now one of many lakes in the area.

Dotted around the route are many 'hides' which are for bird watchers to ' hide' behind as they watch the plethora of bird species that have made this their habitat.

I got quite taken with the aesthetics of the hide itself and started playing with the observation ports and framing them making a picture within a picture.

I really loved the effect with the tones and textures in monochrome and I got kind of carried away and ignored the birds completely.

I think you'll agree the overall effect worked quite well in this medium. I am so glad there were no bird watchers around as they would have given me quite strange looks as I wasn't looking at birds at all. The birds however didn't care at all and went about their usual squawking and making lots of noise, splashing about etc.

I had a good time too!

Views in windows, on photo #2 and #4, look like photographs hanging on the wall of a bizarre prehistoric fortress built by probably even not humans. The light through slits, textures, geometry make images look cool.

No birdwatchers ... Are you sure there were no critters (like fairies or other humanwatchers) hiding in the shade while you were busy with taking images?

Thats the look i was trying to create. Great description! Probably some orcs looking to jump me on the way back I'll bet!
