Middle of the Dish

I am constantly intrigued by the interplay between nature and technology. Which is partly why I love checking back in on the space station. As it falls more and more into abandon the signs of nature reclaiming that area become more evident. Grass encroaches more and more over and through the concrete and pavement, animals have clearly bunked down in some areas of the buildings, birds building their nests under disused walkways. Sometimes when I take a picture I'll try and eliminate the technological just to focus on the nature. Sometimes I'll try to show the interplay between the two. I know it can be a tired theme but it's one that grabs my brain.

In other photography news, I shot a roll of what I thought were going to be nice moody dark low contast black and white coastal shots the other day. I realized when dropping it off that I was in fact shooting colour. Ack. It should be interesting to see how they print them because I was shooting through an orange filter. I'm really interested to see if the orange filter will work if I'm converting the image to b&w rather than shooting b&w.
