  #194 Quiet/Serene
Entry 26 of 28
   
 
Ghanian Coffin       ©2017 aoc46
Panasonic DMC-LX100       25th place, 7 points
1/20s, f5.6, ISO 1600, ?, Aperture Priority, Spot, no flash
 
Post-Processing: Tonal adjustment, B&W conversion during RAW processing; crop, resize.       Extra Info: Yes, it's actually a coffin, on display in the African exhibit of an art museum. Apparently, there is a tradition in Ghana of custom-carved coffins decorated to suit the client's wishes. The connection to Quiet/Serene should be obvious, considering the eventual occupant....

I did this in monochrome because while the main subject was mostly B&W, the "Lifeguard" figure was wearing a bright red sweater and a purple(!) cap.

    I saw this at the Stanford Univ. Art Museum after taking my Main shot and put it in just because it was so bizarre. I didn't expect it to get many votes (thanks Lo, dk, Carrie46!) but am surprised at so few comments.

    Interesting that the observer is a life guard looking at the coffin.

    Really interesting subject and great in B&W. Red and purple, eh? The image is slight soft, and I'm not sure if it's on theme.
