The Bus Stop at Baigh Na Hearadh

Postby minniev » Sun Sep 17, 2017 4:05 pm

Out in the barren landscape of the backroads on the Hebrides, there are bus stops, postal boxes and phone booths that turn up in incongruous locations. This one has been "made homey". I didn't know whether it was scenery or architecture so I put it in B&W. Choices, choices...

All suggestions and edits are welcome.

I like it minniev, interesting, the lower perspective is working, seems the lay of the land might have helped that...maybe a bit more of a blend with the vignette.....

Thanks Frank. Good thought about the vignette. I do have to experiment with that sometimes though...

Wild. A Staples office chair on coasters in the middle of the 'boonies!' Really homey. Really bonnie. Clever catch. Encouraging to note the need to modify the vignette. Gives me hope. Matt

Thanks Matt for your thoughts. All images are subjects for re-edit! Everything I do is an experiment that's possibly on the way to somewhere else, kinda like the folks who use the bus stop.

I was curious about the function of the whiskey bottle half full of pebbles, too.

I'm liking the little bottle of whatever and wonder if I'd ever want to leave with such an amazing landscape! S-
