Common Wealth




Some ‘shifted landscapes’ in black and white. Not what I was planning on posting but there you go…I got distracted.

  1. Hi Karen these are absolutely stunning in b&w – I really would have not thought so – it is a revelation> You absolutely now need an Epson 9900 printer and make mural seize prints!!!!! 🙂

    1. Hi Christian, thanks very much. I wasn’t sure how they would translate to black and white but I like how these look too.

      I think that printer might be out of my price range! I do have an Epson 2200 that I’ve had for many years, though, and it still works very well. A big printer would be a lot of fun.

  2. It’s a Wizard of Oz reversal; we’ve stepped from this loud world of color to a mystical quiet place of black and white. I especially loved the humor and mystery in Cooling the Landscape. Something about that vertical orientation makes it feel like a living, breathing entity.

  3. Hehehe, cooling the landscape! That boxy shape is such a discordant element in the series. I love the grasses in the second last,everything is just dancing. Fantastic images!

  4. I do this often too… in-camera double exposures. There are no limits!
    Wonderful images, Karen.
