Loleta Dairy - detail 2

Posted by
Stephen Phillips (San Francisco, United States) on 26 September 2008 in Abstract & Conceptual and Portfolio.

[photographer's notebook]: This just in...

I was shooting with model Lacey Field yesterday. She is from this area and knows our town well. I find out that it is pronounced 'Lo-Lee-ta' (like the 16 year old Lolita of literary and movie fame) - not 'Lo-let-tah' as I've been saying. It is a small world.

I LOVE this Stephen, I am a rust lover as you know and this is just stunning, the colour and contrast here is wonderful, complete with the detail of the cobwebs, brilliant!

Une étonnante composition du temps qui passe

@Zygene: Qu'est-ce qui se passe à cette installation de traitement des produits laitiers - est vrai pour tout dans notre vie - nos relations - nos métiers - nos corps et l'esprit: si nous cessons de soins et pour maintenir les choses qui sont importantes pour nous - nous allons les perdre rapidement.

Great composition. I also like the rusty texture.

You'll be happy to know that I've been pronouncing it right lol must be 'cause I'm French (Canadian)...

@Lorraine: Oh, you clever French-Canadian - you. My poor tenth grade English teacher - Mrs. Hamilton - just constantly spins around in her grave over my faux pas. Anyway - it is great to have you on board. May I throw future pronunciation questions your way?

I love this - it seems very abstract to me - interesting how the closer we ge to something the less recognizable it becomes sometimes. The colors and textures are interesting.

Eheh Language has some "traps"... I don't know why I was reading it like the "ee" and not the "eh" :o)
About this picture... well, this really shows what you intended to show: abandonment and old structure. This brown rusty structure and the cobweb are just fantastic. Thanks Stephen

@Rui: Language is fascinating - especially when you look at its origins, and growth, and then the changes that are happening - "as we speak!"

Very nice abstract, even the rust gives an impactful color. I don't speak French Stephen, but how about; schitterende plaatje..?

@Observing: Mike - not a clue - and I'll let you blow my cover with Zygene as well. My French is only as good as 'Google Translates' - and my elocution with her in that beautiful language is (I'm sad to say) a fraud. Or, to put it another way: Mon français est seulement aussi bon que "Google traduit" - et mon élocution avec elle dans cette belle langue est (je suis triste de dire) une fraude.

Throw anything my way, I love to translate--:)
