On October 16th 2017 I did decide to leave the handcuffs closed.
Instead I wanted to find out what others had to say about my last post.
The “Bird” had been removed from 3 groups but the creator was still member.
In one group about digital photography someone said: “Abstract photography, sometimes called non-objective, experimental, conceptual or concrete photography, is a means of depicting a visual image that does not have an immediate association with the object world and that has been created through the use of photographic equipment, processes or materials and mostly without a camera or film”
In one group about abstraction someone said: “Nice bird, but I think you are missing the point here.”
In the group AP one moderator asked: “Is it a church window?”
Grabbed a coffee and started with the group Abstract Photography.
Under the comment about the church window I said: “Yes. Why?”. The answer came a second later: “Was wondering about the colors. Are they manipulated?”. Starting to laugh I typed: “No they aren’t. But I should probably remove it?.” Never got any answer.
Next I took the comment about the bird. Typed: “It is not a “bird”. It is only an image that does remind us of a bird. Perhaps. But there was no “bird” in the original motif. At least not intended I think.”. Silence and the admin asked: “What do you mean?”. Posted a picture of the original stained glass window. Admin: “Shit, that is cool!”. Me: “Thank you! Is it an abstraction in some way?”. Admin: “Don’t think so but I like it.”
Finally went to the definition about Abstract Photography. Typed: “Thank you for taking time to answer! This was also the definition I learned long time ago. But looking around I wonder if there is also an abstract photography that does represent the reality as it is? Like walls, peeling paint, rust, thorn of posters, nudes in a bathtub and other things we get to see in our real life? I’m beginner and didn’t study art so I’m just trying to find out…”
Instead of an answer the messenger showed a new message and someone said: “Well, how do I get started?”
And because it took some time to get started I posted “Architectural”.
What do you think? Is the motif still there 365 days later?
