Study in Holes

2013-04-03_16-35-34_227The more I look at this photo, the more I am drawn to it (don’t get me wrong, I don’t think it’s going up on a wall in my house 🙂 )

The first aspect of this photograph is the pattern formed by the holes. What I particularly enjoy is that the pattern is mysteriously interrupted on the lower right of the photo. What could explain that?

Secondly, the texture of the subject’s surface is incredibly interesting. The darker splashes of color look like they could be from a frenetic painter’s brush. They add life and much character to this photo.



Spheres of Influence

IMG_0116_cropped_smlAs I’ve mentioned, what makes a photograph intriguing is when the mind can’t quite figure out what the eyes are viewing. Thanks to macro photography, this subject is sufficiently obscure to defy identification.

In any case, I like the interplay of the silver disks and the active feeling of movement from all of the circular, overlapping shapes.
