The featured image I am submitting for this week’s challenge is a photo that was taken by my son, Josh Steiner, when he and his wife lived in Worcester, Massachusetts. Coincidently, this morning I just finished prepping the image for printing in black-and-white. That prompted me to share some other images in black-and-white, all hopefully lending a feeling of depth.
This week, Ben Huberman challenges us to share photos that represent depth in one form or another. From the Challenge post Ben writes, “This week, share with us your take on “depth” — you can take it literally, like me, by showing something (a dense forest, your lawn after a blizzard) that suggests volume, a distance between surface and bottom.” You can view the entire challenge post here. I submit for your approval, a small gallery of images that invoke a feeling of depth. Click on an image to enlarge it and to scroll through the gallery.
Regular readers will spot one of my favorite images, and the topic allowed me to include it in yet another challenge gallery. Three of the images in the gallery focus on repetition to provide the feeling of depth in the photograph. The other two images represent depth by their subject matter. Both the Grand Canyon and Glen Canyon Dam photos demonstrate the extreme depth that the Colorado River etched into the planet. The Pecos River image indicates a tremendous lack of depth in the river itself, while at the same time the now dry boat docks add depth to the image.
