I loooove the
because it motivates me and brings me to a focus—
So when your building is a stack of (reputedly) more than a million of these things, my shot of half-a-brick meets the ‘minimalist’ criterion.
HERE’S WHAT THE
whole stack looks like. Sorry about the distortions, I had to fit it in somehow and at the time squashing it was the preferred option—
—and our brick above came from about eye level under one of the three wee windows to the left of the arched door. Moving on …
and personified is the very human (actually, every living thing’s natural) Lust For Life .
Two factors here:
(a) I spend a lot of time poking about where others poke not, and find oodles of weird things; and
(b) the above illustrates in minimalist form all that’s unstoppable about the most powerful moving force of life itself. At some time a seed must have blown in through the open window of this semi-abandoned building, taken root and is reaching for the stars.
AND NOW, TECHNICAL MINIMALISM
or mad rapturous over-indulgence (seasoned heavily with ‘devil take the hindmost’)?
I offer you this gem, a snap taken in an alleyway in town this afternoon, about ten feet clear of the ground—
—and I just love it. Scruffy maybe, possibly a tad illegal perhaps (I have no idea) but certainly artistic even though few people will ever get to see it.
Minimalist? Yes … the respect for authority of the generations of guys who set it all together. Ya gotta love it~!
I shall photograph a final thought on the current challenge and if it works, post it. It will be a bit blatantly subtle and I just hope you get the point …
