All for a Good Gauze
Posted By: Sailor, 03-23-2009, 04:06 PM

Pardon the pun - I couldn't help myself. Inspired by JMR (who does brilliant abstracts) and faced with a spare moment, I drug my lazy carcass up to one of our curtained windows and shot this hand-held close-up with a DA 35. Don't know why - just begauze, I guess.

I like it Jer though it would be just that much better if the blinds were totally closed. JIM

Actually, buddy, the curtain is closed, but thin. Remember, I'm a poverty stricken pensioner now.

Hey man, if I remember from what I learned in high school, it's that big yellow thing around which the Earth orbits . . . . at least in Texas. I hope you exit winter soon.

The texture is incredible. The subtle lighting makes it a good image!

I like this too! Good and sharp texture, and I like the light gap too, makes a good contrast along the darker left side, adding a nice tension to the photo!

Hey, I said to myself, what could this gauze be? I expected someone in bandaids, like a mummy. Oh, it would have worked at certain angle to "that big yellow thing around which the Earth orbits . . . . at least in Texas." I like the oblique placement of the curtain folds in the frame. I also have a suggestion for the sheer curtain: you might want to use it as a diffuser for shooting still life.

Thanks, JMR. Not in your league by any means, but a new wrinkle for me (Oh how I wish I hadn't said that).
