This is, hopefully, one of many more experimental images to come. Sometimes it’s difficult to force my mind outside of that “subject” mentality and focus more on shape, color and mood. These images are an attempt to learn to selectively focus my mind.

I like the chaos this presents. Yet, even in that chaos there is this unmistakable, repeating sense of order.

Despite what your eyes may tell you, this image has not been “photoshopped” any more than the usual curves, cropping and color. However, it looks fake and, almost, painted.

High grain, slight overexposure, and slightly out of focus will get you this effect, if you ever want to try it yourself.

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated, as always.

This didn’t come out as well as I had hoped, but I still like it. I’ve decided to publish it mostly because, often I am asked “what, exactly, are you taking a picture OF?”. I was asked that very question when I took this image so I figured this image will explain it much better than my words ever could.

Your comments and suggestions are appreciated, as always.
