Let me know which you prefer and why.
WordPress Weekly Photo Challenge courts the theme: lost in the details. It’s a subject that can be applied with ease and difficulty to our contemporary lives. We are urged by technology and bombarded by innovations that call us to be bound by small details. At the same time, we are physically surrounded by visual changes that swamp our minds with clutter.
The sheer joy of photography is to record the rapidity of twenty-first century lifestyle, and be able to still the simple and the complex. Each image propels us to ponder the world of the tiny and the mammoth. Each photograph gives us pause to analyze, and interpret how the popular culture keeps re-imagining daily life and what is yet to be.
In the Lens section are my entries. Photograph one is a sunset, which is so detailed in its spectrum that small bunches of berries are not seen hanging from a tree in the upper right corner. Also, the buildings are darken with silence and details cannot be recognized.
In the second image a fifty-foot tree is dwarfed by details of the lichen, which glories in its own striking beauty. True details of the tree are lost and not to be found, but eminence reigns.
Note: As always I welcome comments about this post or any part of my blog.
