Tangled up in vines

Black And White Photography, Photography, Steven

I struggled at first when I tried to refine the composition of this photograph. I thought there should be a way to crop, or a better angle to simplify the image. I was fighting with reality. In the end, I accepted the fact that what drew me to the image in the first place was the chaos, and how the eye wants to zigzag all over the frame before it lands on the little “bullseye” in the top center of the image. It was an image that knew what it wanted to be before I did.

  1. Great image Steven 🙂 You are absolutely correct the chaos makes the image. I guess some things are best left to Mother Nature to compose. Awesome work.
