I’m finding it difficult to get the time to chase fresh images for some of these exercises so today, again, I searched my files and found some samples of Edge and Alignment that may suit the challenge. Just for fun, I’ve added one that is aligned within the image frame, has the edge alright, but is a little different. Hope you enjoy them:
My mate saw me coming with the camera at the ready and tried to close the sliding door. Too late, as another mate grabbed him, just as I pushed the go button.
This next image was made at the historic Cockatoo Island in Sydney Harbour. This derelict building was constructed by convicts in the early days of the settlement. It is now an historic site.
I made this following image on Cockatoo Island too. There are many tunnels on the island but this one in particular is well lit and an interesting example of the use of timber shoring in tunnels. I find the repitition interesting and the individual walking towards the camera gives a clue as to the tunnel’s dimensions. The focus is sharp and entering the tunnel makes you feel a little edgy.
The next image was made through the upstairs window of a derelict double decker bus, abandoned at a deserted spot in one of South Australia’s great arid areas. In spite of the crop requirement for this assignment, I decided to be a naughty boy and ignore the instruction as cropping on the left would have chopped off the front of my mate’s Landrover. That’s mine with the spare on the roof bars. Secondly I wanted to preserve the integrity of the image in order that it conformed with the one that follows on.
This next image is the almost complete window frame from which the above image was made. I’ve included it to show that from time to time, to preserve a photographic essay’s accuracy, cropping and post processing should be kept to an absolute minimum. The next two images should illustrate that fact. Unfortunately my lens was not wide enough to cover the whole window area.
Now, here is last of the three bus window images:
On the positive side though, the two rear windows are sharp and aligned. Spot on with requirements.
My final image is certainly sharp, in the focus area at least and the items visible in the background are aligned with the main aperture. Does it pass muster, I’m not sure but I like it never the less.
This final image is an example of the industrial detritus on display at Cockatoo Island in Sydney harbour. It is an industrial archaeologist’s paradise.
So, that’s it from me. Tonight I’ve spared you from technical detail. However suffice to say the data is available should you be interested.
Hoo roo for now.

They’re so good – love the bus!
Thank you,I often wonder about the bus’s story.
Nice shots. I especially like nos. 2, 3, and the view through the rusty pipe.
These are all so interesting! And the man so generously introducing himself gives a very special angle to the illustration. It’s overwhelming, in a positive way, how close the nature is to everything you see. Great 🙂
