Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

A Mother's Treasure III

I continue to work on my series of compositions making up a mini-project I call 'A Mother's Treasure'.  Details can be found here.  

This particular composition comes from an ornate area on the back of the regal clothes that are worn by the 'king'. I liked the repetitive rainbow shapes placed within the more complex engraving.

A Mother's Treasure II

A couple of post's back I found myself wondering if there was a series to be had in photographing two decorative statues that were handed down to me by my mother, who is in poor health. That original post was entitled "A Mother's Treasure".

I think it will, in fact, end up a series. At least I find myself drawn to making more images of these statues (I'm sure that isn't the correct term for them). The only question is whether I will find enough to make it a short series or if it will capture my attention for a longer while. Even when doing a series, I tend to produce the finished images slowly....this is #2 and I'm sure there will be more to come.
