Open Window #2, Upper Winchendon

The window above the last one at a narrow angle with the parts casually put together and the colours transformed. Colour values were very different from shot to shot and while fiddling about with them I decided that as the parts were reminiscent (to me) of paintings by Delaunay in a style influenced by Picasso and Braque's Cubism that I could get away with limiting it to blues and light browns. One of the things I like in this kind of shot is the details you end up recording that you might normally pay no heed to - the overhanging gutter of the roof in two sections as a practical instance, and that sideways eye of the gap between window and frame that shows a visual relation that is right in front of us but you might never 'believe' until you see it presented in a photograph.
