At first glance, the cerulean blue at top makes it seem like one is looking up a staircase towards a skylight. The fact that the view is actually towards the ground adds a wonderful little touch.

P.S. The bright blue contrasted with the remaining muted palette is another terrific element.

Thanks for your second comment, Alan. I hope you’re getting my replies.

Because I know what this scene is, I know that the blue is not a skylight. So it’s fun to pretend that it is and see where that takes me. Fun!

Thank you, Alan. See my misplaced comment below.

Shoot. My replies aren’t going where they are supposed to.

Nice crisp colors, as if in a realist painting, and a very interesting descending and skewed perspective. The absence of distracting objects and trinkets does transmute the scene into a work of art. — LMP

Larry, thanks. I love it when people take apart my photographs in analysis. Usually, when I take them, all I see is that I can see something in the viewfinder that I like and can get into a composition (or not). It’s a gestalt kind of thing—or maybe just lazy nonthinking.

Again, I like this very much. And I agree with ag – that patch of bright blue sends this image into orbit! Lovely light on the right too. A 🙂

Thanks, Adrian. I must have been there at just the right time of day to get those shadows and light on the right. Another boost from luck.

This is full of anticipation. All the subdued colors and angles are toned so carefully, everything is hushed, but then there’s that open door….wonderful!! It’s fun to see what wonders you can do with a good indoor space.

Thanks, Lynn. A good indoor space is hard to find. Or maybe I just think so because I’m usually distracted by the other people in the space. I need to go into people’s houses when no one is home. I think that’s called breaking and entering.

🙂 Got a laugh! But I think this space may be unusual in its sense of quiet and timelessness. Still, yes – look for more!

OK, I will.

I have especially enjoyed the Farmhouse series. However, I am curious about the walls. They all appear to be painted with the exception, I believe, of one room that was papered. Am I misremembering?
And I do understand the need to back away from the demands of a posting-a-day schedule.

Thanks, I’m glad you enjoyed that series, Larry. Two of the rooms I showed had printed wallpaper: https://lindagrashoff.wordpress.com/2018/08/31/the-farmhouse-14/ and https://lindagrashoff.wordpress.com/2018/08/28/the-farmhouse-10/. The other rooms were painted. Happy you understand about my posting less frequently.
