The topic for this exploration was square format. Kat gives some insightful tips for shooting in a square format, as well as compositions that work well in the square format.
Last night I skipped dinner and went out shooting in the late day sun, one of my favorite things to do. I had a daily prompt of "hope" in the back of my mind, yet found myself traveling inland towards Sanford, a former mill town, primarily blue-collar, that speaks not to "hope", but more to hard times. I guess my shooting time fed my own sense of hope rather than finding a way of picturing hope; I captured a lot of photos that I like.
This morning I thought I'd see if something I captured might lend itself to square format before the link deadline of March 22 comes and goes. I look forward another time to shooting with square format in mind, rather than just cropping that way.
Old arched entry to a mill building now abandoned. Sanford's mill buildings stand large and formidable....it is sad to see them empty and lifeless being only able to imagine them in their glory days.
