The mash-up is beautiful, but as you might expect, I’m happy enough with the first shot alone. I’m wondering where that slightly distorted look comes from. Can you tell me? The other quality I like so much about this is the even, bright spread of light. A northern light. t seems to caress the leaves, every vein. I am sorry for the person who looks at this and just sees a few leaves.
Thanks Lynn. The image you’re referring to is pretty much what came straight from the camera. The slight distortion you see may just be a function of the wide angle lens, the curl of the leaves, a fairly shallow depth of field, and the downward-looking angle of view.
Hmmm, have I left anything out :)
That does make sense, all those factors together…it’s wonderful. I always like seeing the overlapped borders on the mashups, too, that “evidence” of multiple views.
:-)!! And those comments came before I saw the tags! Spiritual indeed!
Yes, there seemed to be a lesson here but one that’s so hard to retain and make manifest.
Are you talking about a lesson about how to manifest that presence in art? No doubt that’s elusive! That makes me think of John Daido Loori – I know we’ve talked about him before – maybe he approached that sometimes. What do you think? I’m going from memory and a google image search of his photography, I don’t have any of his books. I should, I guess, I resisted reading him for some reason.
I was talking about translating spiritual insights into daily behavior. That’s the only thing that matters as far as I’m concerned, and something I’m light years away from mastering.
For that reason, I’m hardly in a position to answer your question about Loori’s work.
