Through the Opening; Behind the Wall

I usually take a few seconds to review each photo I take but also there are photos that I just take really quick and move on. This is one of them. I was going for the texture and strucutre of the wall stones; I was surprised to find that there is more than that!

Someone was walking behind the wall and his/her feet got caught in the photo through that opening. I think that added another layer to the photo. Imagine that opening empty, it’d be less interesting, don’t you think?

Picks From Feb. 1st 2017 Part 1: Textures

I took a walk in town with my camera two days ago, took a lot of shots. I spent yesterday processing most of them and now I’m ready to post them.

For this first collection, I picked all the photos that include any kind of texture in them.

I enjoy taking pictures of tree trunks. I love that no matter how many times I take pictures of the same tree, the texture almost always looks different within the frame.

These photos show one side of the same tree trunk. you can already see that; they’re not that different; but they are different in the way the texture conjures images in my head. I find that very interesting and enjoyable.

So I hope you liked the high-contrast textures. I’m not very into it but I never shy away from any subject that has photographic potential.

Next part will be Green & Blue.

Impromptu Poem 17/01/2017

The Greatest Wall in the World

There is this wall somewhere in my mind,

everywhere in the world and it is the greatest.

This wall is invisible and is visible to all.

Anyone can reach it, effortlessly, just like breathing.

Most times, it is what we want to be.

A wall of reflection and projection.

A birthplace of great ideas

that pushed us far into our journey in this world

but it is a shame that now we might consider

anything other than Imagination being the greatest

because once we do, the wall will turn into a ceiling.
