A couple of days ago I bought 3 large gourds.
They were for sale at a market.
I instantly thought of them as a possible
photo subject and have been experimenting
for a couple of days.
I now think that there is not going to
a 'keeper' there but it is a worthwhile
exercise to give it a try, if for no
other reason than to discover why the
photos don't work.
I tried in colour and black and white
but still to no avail.
I did however remember how I had
taken a photo of a cone shell
several years ago. It is called
After Rembrandt because I
based it on a Rembrandt etching.
When I look at this photo, alongside
the gourd ones, I see that it is really
the speckles, the pattern
that I am interested in.
