Another Photo Montage: Shades of Gray


Don't want to bore you
but a lot of you seem to enjoy
these photo montages.



This time I'll tell you where I took the photos and give a context.
And though there are mosaic builders on the web,
this one was done by hand from a template I created.

Upper left: detail on Manhattan building
Upper center: tree branch, Wright Park, Tacoma
Upper right: machinery gear parts, Fremont district, Seattle


2nd row left: garden angel from my garden
2nd row center: view through the clock window
at MuseƩ d'Orsay toward Sacre Coeur, Paris
2nd row right: marina on Lake Union, Seattle, in the fog


Lower Left: sunflower at farmer's market, Tacoma's Proctor District
Lower Center: Building detail, Manhattan, about a block from Times Square
Lower Right: art installation in window in Belltown neighborhood, Seattle,
featuring fishing line with suspended CD's



It seems really appropriate today,
a totally gray and rainy day.

although one can tire of gray skies, these pictures puts gray into a most beautiful perspective

I wonder how many of us have taken that same shot of montmartre through the clock at the musee d'orsay!!

thanks for the details.

i absolutely love this! i think i like black and white mosaics better than color ones. so many tones and so much contrast. very visually interesting!
