Photomosics :: More Experiments

Photomosics :: More Experiments
Originally uploaded by imageo.
Returning to the experiment I started last week, I have been taking a number of time lapse photos (using the night scene setting on my camera, which leave the shutter open up to 4 seconds) from a moving bus in the early mornings. Of course the images are blurred and streaked out, but the colours and the abstract patterns are pretty amazing. I like the effects such "abstract" photos can create when you combine them, and add repeating paterns as in he examples below. (I used the picture grid feature in picasa's collage maker, and gimp for the grids)

Roadside sellers are all along, any road you care to take in ghana.Like most Ghanians, Sonali has a lovely smile and was happy to have her photo taken, but I doubt this web presence is going to have much impact on her sales.

Road Trip Collage

Road Trip Collage, originally uploaded by imageo.

This is is one of those, "now for something completely different" posts. It was inspired by firstly photo fridays experimatal topic and secondly by boredom (I am currently spending 4 hours a day in a bus travelling the backroads of ghana.

This is a collage of available light images taken on a very misty morning, from a "moving" bus.
