SPC - 'Defying Gravity' - #4

A Change In Perspective

We used to get on top of tables and hang our heads over the edge and look at the room upside down to imagine the ceiling was the floor and the floor was the ceiling.

Sometimes a change in perspective is exactly what one needs.

Photo Friday - 'Minimalist'

Interesting that this theme comes on the heels of "Lines" last week.

Even though I wouldn't consider the photo that I posted last week for "Lines" as "minimal" (though, a case could be made), I see lines, and the simplicity thereof, as a fundamental in visual minimalism.

Even in nature, I have a tendency to reduce many of my photographs to their most basic elements. This can be accomplished by lighting, background and composition.

I think modern photography, in it's effort to capture maximum detail, is often counter-intuitive in conveying minimalism and yet it can be done.

Since it's a relatively modern concept, I've chosen a relatively modern subject for this theme:

Pink Watercooler

Photo Friday - 'Lines'

It was tough to choose a photo for this Photo Friday theme, "Lines."

I have almost fifty public photos on my Flickr photostream tagged Lines. Additionally, sixty or so are tagged Stripes (some overlap between the two, but not as much as you might suspect.)

I've always been fascinated by geometry and lines. It's the convergence of math and art that draws me in, I think.

Thinking about convergence helped me to choose this image for the theme:
