Not Replicable

I did continue to explore other subject matter during my abstract photography class, but I kept coming back to the sculpture. I photographed it on three separate occasions in August and then once again in September and twice in October. The total count of raw image files so far is just over 1100.

One of the more fascinating aspect of the experience is that each of the six sessions is unique. There are commonalities among the images composed on any given day, but striking differences from day to day. I don’t know why. My technique doesn’t vary substantially and the sculpture is almost always in total shade. I’ve used several lenses and all three of my DSLR camera bodies, but that shouldn’t have a significant impact. Just another mystery.


Like the shades of purple you see here in Battaglia. It’s some magical combination of the blue metal sculpture and orange plastic patio chair. Don’t ask me to explain it.
