The world is never quiet, even it’s silence eternally resounds with the same notes, in vibrations which escape our ears. As for those we perceive, they carry sounds to us, occasionally a chord, never a melody.
I have struggled to think of what to write. So I’ll keep words to a minimum this month, and hopefully the images will speak for themselves. I feel almost ashamed to say it but I’m pretty pleased with this month’s shots.
The roll was shot in three locations:
- A local park – same park as in my original post (roll zero)
- A walk not far outside my town, Devizes, on a gorgeously sunny morning.
- Avebury: like Stonehenge but bigger.
Reflections allow for a completely different feel and approach to a photograph. They allow for a framing mechanism, an extension of the visual field as well as quite often distortion. I find myself using and exploring them a lot more.
There is a large expanse of mainly flat land with gradual inclines outside the town in which I live. Low morning winter sun, puddles and leading lines.
“The most useless gate”
Avebury has an immense prehistoric significance. An enormous stone circle, steep human-made ditches and a bank around 1.3km long, all created some 4000 years ago.
