A day in the life of a window latch


Nikon @ 50mm, f/1.8, ISO 200, various shutter speeds


Previous · Current · Next


I almost felt as if I was going back to my roots when taking these shots. It reminded me of the days when I'd be stuck in my old house (being a student, I didn't have anything else to do) and would hunt for something to shoot. I've said this a couple of times before, but I like the challenge of finding the extra in the ordinary... trying to make everyday and otherwise boring subjects appear interesting.

So I took these shots a couple of days ago at lunch time. I hadn't put the 50mm f/1.8 on my camera for a while, and thought it deserved some action. Some subtle light managed to find its way through the clouds outside and past the tenement buildings surrounding my flat. I didn't want to subject you all to 9 consecutive shots of a window latch and frame, so decided to display it as a montage. You can see a slightly larger version here if you're interested.

Extra points for those of you who can guess my favourite shot ;)

I'm glad you presented the shots as a montage - it's very interesting to study this way. I love it.

Your fave is top left corner?

I saw the frame of a house at first glance. Perfect arrangement...creates a picture from pictures..."House Window" (play on words with images). Your favorite might just be center. This picture is the simple one...but it makes me feel like I am there, looking at window you have viewed many times.
