Best of three

Going with a gentler inclination rather than a harder driving intent lead to this – the most satisfying of the three.
The image is soft (soft edges and grainy) but has strong design – geometrically.
So coming back to Jenny’s reference to Minor White’s quote “One should not only photograph things for what they are but for what else they are.” Although the sculpture is a circle in quadrants the camera found two triangles and a curving line. I love what my camera does sometimes.
PS: I also love the new format of posting three in a row if we want to. It gives me the opportunity to tell a story if I want too – or not if I do not feel like it. Thanks Tim and Ian for suggesting that.

  1. John, these three images are a treat. Like you, I’m very fond of that sculpture. It is mesmerising to stand and watch as it changes in the slightest breeze. Thank you for showing it so beautifully.

  2. I have thoroughly enjoyed watching these three images appear. Each the same in a way, but hugely different at the same time.

    And I also find this the most satisfying. It doesnt strongly suggest anything so simply leaves me floating….

    But the form is simply beautiful.

  3. Pure simplicity beyond complexity! Just lovely!

    • Anita, I am interested in that comment – you got what I strive for in one.
