On the same day I took the photos in the post ‘quiet moments‘, I also encountered the following photos on yet another ledge. (These visual art building window ledges sure seem to collect a lot of . . . fanciful dirt?)
I used a kenko tube attachment for these photos (as well as for the ‘quiet moments‘ ones!) . . . the result is a bit of a hazy ‘n lazy look to them, I find. A kenko tube is an attachment you make between your camera and the lens – the result is an achieved ‘macro look’. I personally love using kenko tubes, as they REALLY find the details in things. When I took these photos, the camera lens was about 1 nose-hair away from the subject matter – talk about details. I started out in photography, because I was in admiration of the ability a camera can document something in a way that the eye cannot – I feel these photos prove just exactly that. In the first photo, this block of black paint & ‘____?’ hold different textures – and yet, to the naked eye, I had no idea this was the case. Photography, macro photography specifically in this case, has this insane ability to really capture a moment, or a thing, that would have otherwise remained overlooked and unnoticed. And that is why photography will forever be a dazzling approach to the world in my life. & on that note . . .
Remember : messes and dirty clutter can sometimes hold the same amount of beauty as a dazzling set of diamonds!
