Contemplative Photography 14

14 01 2013

If you’re interested in Miksang photography, check out my ongoing series of posts.  This week I’ve been struck by everything around me being ‘new’ to me.  I’ve just moved to a new town, a new state, a new workplace and job.  Although some things are familiar, all my surroundings are new.  In some ways, it’s great to see everything with new eyes, noticing things that are unusual or different, and seeing some things in reality for the first time.

This angle intrigued me due to its symmetry, patterns, sharp contrasts and colours.  The longer I looked, the less real it seemed and the photo looks to me like a computer game.  This shot was taken from the upper balcony looking down onto the manicured green that displays a much different character at ground level.  See what you see.

A really interesting image, I wonder if you could get a different one as the shadows moved around.

In theory – yes. In reality though, it is now the ‘Wet’ season which means lots of monsoonal rain so there are always clouds in the sky. This was a pocket of direct sunlight which provided the sharp shadows. I’d love to have a timelapse though, of the shadow moving around the pole – that would be cool !!!

it looks quite like it could be a computer-generated graphic, with a doubled seven o’clock! Cool shot!
