What is IT?


About two years ago, as part of the monthly photography scavenger hunt I participate in, we were asked to take a photo to represent the phrase, “This is it.” It was just after the Michael Jackson film of the same name came out. I wandered the streets of Manchester, taking various photos of the letters I and T in signs, thinking I would combine them afterwards to spell “it” repeatedly… in the end, I took a photo of a very dirty Infiniti’s name plate, and used that to make my “it” photo.

I’m thinking about cars today because the car I’ve been driving for four and a half years had a rough weekend, and my mechanic told me it was going to cost many thousands of dollars to get it fixed properly. No fun.

    HI Ronald lee … I still do not understand the concept of this Image what is it ?.. You are associated with Technology field that’s why ?? btw I checked the following photographs and they are very well captured 🙂

  2. That looks like a lot of salt left over from winter. That’s one thing that I don’t miss a whole lot, haha. I really like the picture, the texture is really well captured.

  3. I think you have a very nice interpretation of that “This is It” concert. 🙂 And I love this photo of yours.

    Is it ice?

  5. I love the colour and textures you’ve created in this image with the frost pattern. Certainly worthy of a themed stock collection! Nice work.

    Very nice shot, I can say, This is it! The picture is wonderful the background, the angle and light all are just perfectly blended. Instead of spending thousands of dollars on your car, go for new one like SLR LOL, Thanks for sharing the picture.

  7. Not sure what happened there – I clicked to tweet this and it went off and tweeted and then came back here with the comment ‘missing’.

    So – to repeat – is that frost or rime or something on the metal? Looks good.

    And my sympathies about the cost of the car repairs.

  8. Hey, David – not sure what’s up with my comment system. I’ve had some trouble with CommentLuv recently – probably time to trouble shoot that.

    It’s the gunk that’s left after snow and road salt gets on the back of the car in the winter – what it looks like after the water all evaporates. So salt and grime, mostly.

  9. Nice take of photo its looks like a salt that in the sun..You had a very created idea doing this..Thanks for a unique photograph..

    Great photo. It looks like letter in the rain. It looks great and captured it very well. Nice share!

  11. Really like the colours in this one.

  12. Hey Ronald, I love the picture. Kind of reminded me of the move “Inception” just from looking at it from afar. 🙂 It’s pretty interesting. Great work!

  13. Ouch! I think it might be time for you to get a new car. If what I’m thinking is right, then it’s going to cost you more in the long run if you consider the number of times that you have to get it fixed and the inconvenience that comes with it.

    Before I forget, WONDERFUL PICTURE. It’s kind of deep, and I like it.

    Good share!

  14. Great photo! The texture, the color, it’s really nice! What settings did you use?

    Thanks for sharing!

    Is that Photoshop or real? But what is it? I do not really know.

  16. This looks like “I” and “T” is a couple, meant to be together who are floating in a calm dark blue sea. Even though it didn’t impress me much but seeing other pictures of your album I feel you are a great and an interesting photographer who views things in a different angle.

  17. Wasn’t MJ’s death anniversary earlier this week? Anyways, great image as usual. When i first saw it, I thought of Information Technology since that is my field. lol

    Maybe ice in the water?

    It doesn’t look like a name plate. It looks like huge letters on ice shot from a decent height.
