Swings at Lugar Plaza

Now that we’re into November I’m thinking about this blog’s traditional end-of-year posts, one of which is the ten images I like best that I made all year. I may have made more images in 2019 than in any other year, but I’m a little disappointed that I’ve made few that satisfy me deeply.

As I upload my work to Flickr, I add the few I like best to an album I call Portfolio, which you can see here. My ten 2019 favorites will come from these. This image, of a newly installed public swing in front of the City-County Buidling in Downtown Indianapolis, is in that album but won’t make the ten-favorite cut. I like the almost 3-D effect of the swing canopy jutting forth from the plane of the City-County Building exterior, though.

    That’s a nice shot, and it does demonstrate a pronounced 3-D effect. There was a good discussion on Filmwasters recently about how one achieves an impression of depth. It seems to me that perspective and contrast are the two main components, but others had different ideas. I think one message of that is that everyone brings their own history to the viewing experience.

      Perspective and contrast are certainly key elements of the 3-D effect in this photo.
