Could be a painting, but it’s not. A photograph, perhaps. Yes, a photograph, but why the blur? Was the camera movement intentional or was it a miscue?
What is it you see? Only a grainy image of dark and light and shadows? A sunrise or sunset? Water and land and trees?
How do you feel when observing this image? Nothing? A mystery to be solved? A sense of calm? A memory?
I know what I see since I took the photograph. I know exactly where this is and when it was taken. I recall the moment and swiping my cellphone as I depressed the shutter button. When I view this photograph I am transported back in time to a moment when I felt at peace as I watched the sun rise over a lake on a cool, calm morning. I like recalling such moments.
Clarity is often gained by reflection…
Both images are beautiful. I just joined an icm (intentional camera movement) group on FB. There are some wonderful examples and it is giving me new interest in playing with the technique. If you are on FB here is the group: https://www.facebook.com/groups/icmphotomag
Appreciate your feedback and the heads up about ICM (not to be confused with ICBM !). I will check into it.
Thank you, LA. Also, appreciate your post after yesterday’s Capitol tragedy.
