Spirals of Life


On slow days in the studio, I often experiment with shooting abstract images. Mostly, this is just goofing around. (Click on each image to see it bigger on your screen.)

We might give these images a self-important and seriously artistic, high-brow title – like “Spirals of Life.” But I’ve come up with a better title. Keep reading!


Can you guess what these objects are? Long time faithful readers will know right away – these are things I’ve worked with before.

Here’s a hintIMG_0616-950px-Edit, an iPhone image of my setup for one of the shots.

Yes, these are Slinkies. I’m fascinated by the shapes you can come up with when playing with these toys that have been around since before I was born.




Did you send these down the stairs as a kid? The original Slinkies were shiny steel and came out in the 1940’s.


Rather than “Spirals of Life,” how about we just call these photographs: “Fun with Slinkies!” Enjoy!

Working both in the studio and on location, photographer Blake Robinson serves the Connecticut communities of Darien, New Canaan, Stamford, Norwalk, Westport and Greenwich.

      Thanks, Maria – I love shooting them – and can spend hours setting them up, moving lights around, etc. endlessly engaging!
