Daily Deviation

Given 2010-11-09
A style of art that has always amazed me is Bokeh - the capture of something we can't instantly see with our own eyes. Suggester Says:`arctoa has a way with the camera; his captures all tend to have a very heady, evocative, and emotional pull. Temporary, Confused is no exception in this. Caught somewhere between shadow and light there is a place so fragile most can't see it, but somehow it's right here in front of us.

World suspended....moon suspended.....life deleted....time elongated and evaporated....you see and I just imagine....you squeeze the balloon full of space and let it dry in Death Valley till the archeologist arrive to catch the pulse of new piece of stone...

That's the sort of aesthetic that I was trying to convey, so I am glad that it comes across for you in such a vivid manner. Thank-you for the comments, it's appreciated.

To me this is one of those things that can be compared to a painting by Picasso or a blurry photograph taken by a child unsure of how a camera works.

there is a story inside this image it seems. it's minimalistic but/and incredibly beautiful. thought-provoking in a way and visually engrossing.

It was certainly captured at an emotionally-charged time in an alien place. Thank-you for the comment, I appreciate that you like it.
