Taking on the topic of trees in the city, these “talking” shadows caught my eye.
I was not aware about the extent to which a self-set theme can intensify seeing. Ok, I was interested in trees before, also in that conflict area of nature in the city, so I did not have to go out of my way, but the thematic reflection, the pondering on the facets of city trees created positive attention that was gratified by new awareness of image-worthy sceneries.
George Barr from the “Behind the Lens” blog had recently opened a discussion on the topic “Do we need to do projects”, which provoked a variety of answers (and a slightly academic deviation). That Brooks Jensen of Lenswork had used trees as his example of how to anchor images in projects I read just now – my tree imaging had already started before.
