I loved the reflection of the pickets in the house window and the simple red and white color combination. I think it will look good in black and white as well. Despite the glorious colors here, I am still attracted to the monochrome image and I'm putting a folio of images together called Monhegan Monochrome. I'll post some of those later.
The fire hose curled up by the fire house offered an unexpected spiral pattern. The design principles - pattern, contrast, unity, etc. - also offer the photographer some interesting possibilities for focusing attention. As I said yesterday, contemplating the intrinsic design of the man-made or natural landscape is always an interesting activity for the photographer...it's all about perception. What you chose to see and what you over look can make all the difference in the world. Both are fuel for the contemplative photographer to consider.
Art is pattern informed by sensibility.
