Photography – Realness & Abstractness

“The real voyage of discovering consists not in seeking new landscapes, but in having new eyes”  – Marcel Proust

One aspect of photography that always captured me is ‘Reality’. Is there actually a common reality or is it everyone’s perception? It is the unique trait of a photograph that, no matter how abstract or non-representational, it always originated from something that ‘really’ existed. Yet the question “what is it?” is ‘really’ not of any importance for the visual experience.

One cold morning I noticed the condensation on the bathroom window, glaring in the sun. With a close-up lens I was able to capture what looks abstract or non-representational, yet is very much real. The little droplets act as little lenses, reflecting objects in the yard (sky, the rising sun, a golden tamarack tree) – all upside down     ………    Abstractness & Realness – at the same time

    These are not like any condensation I have ever “seen”. Wonderful examples of what some of us disregard. My favourite of these has always been the last thumbnail… love the tones and the vertical depth captured.

    Hey Klaus…..those are fantastic…..one has to view them larger as I didn’t notice the detail in them till I viewed them in a larger window. Great stuff.
