Man in Window

This is one of a series of photographs I took while waiting for a train. I'm pleased with the repetition of rectangular shapes, and I like the muted colors and lack of definition caused by shooting through the glass. The composition emphasizes loneliness and emptiness of this man's life.

Spotlighted Brick Wall

Monday, Cousin Elinor did a presentation about me and my work to a camera club, and she says it was enthusiastically received. She converted some of my photographs to digital for the presentation. I'm thinking about going digital. But would I be true to myself if I left film for digital? I'm undecided. Anyway, here is one of my most recent photographs, where light falling on the brick wall is exciting.

Dark into Light

The critic certainly captured the essence of this, my favorite "dark" photograph. She wrote, "The stellar explosion illuminates the crepuscular landscape as it does to the viewer’s imagination."

Light forms

This is one of a series of photographs that are mainly very dark, but are exciting because of the areas of light. Viewers have found this one spectacular. One critic commented, " Shrouding humanity in absent obscurity, so characteristic of her work, Ronile's photograph depicts the hidden essence of mortality."

I have no idea what this flower is, but I like the feeling of light that seems to emanate from it. I also like what one critic wrote about the photograph: The finger of nature, reaching toward the infinite, and emphasized by Ronile’s use of contrasting colors, alludes to man’s desire to harness the spiritual force of the material world.

Computer problems

My computer foiled my best intentions to post regularly. It seems that it had a virus, and my incredible technician had to wipe everything off my C drive. By coincidence, cousin Elinor had similar problems. I now have access to everything on the computer, so I'll post an incredible photo tomorrow. Promise.

I overexposed the scene by several stops so that the light really overwhelms this image of cattails. I think it's ethereal and beautiful. I shot another version that's even more simplified. I love them both. Which do you like best?
