My wife’s an interior decorator, she would say this composition is “busy”. Well, it’s definitely busy. But that was my intent when I “saw” this shot. My hope is, for the viewer to experience all the “scenes” or compositions contained within by navigating the lines, shapes and patterns. The composition is looking down on Av. Vaudoyer, near the Promenade Robert-Laffont at the Port of Marseille, France.
I’m taking a Mindfulness in Photography class at my local community art school. The discipline is about “seeing’ first, before the brain jumps to conceptualizing, comparing past experience, and any number of internal or external distractions. How often had I missed seeing the beauty of the morning light falling over the dew collecting on an iris leaf in my koi pond?
