I have enjoyed your responses to my projective abstracts. I photograph trees when I see several images in the bark that set the stage for many stories inherent in the abundant imagery of nature. As I have often said, nothing can compete with the beauty of nature or give us the myriad of imagery and the variety of texture that we can perceive within rocks, plants, flowers and the bark of trees. The key is to see the stories told in trees of all ages. I can see many images in this bark abstract including a large gray poodle at the top of the photograph, a large white duck in the right upper corner and a dark alien figure with a vibrant orange eye to mention a few. Although these images are disparate, there is a story to be told by the various characters and icons. Like the Rorschach, there are no right or wrong answers and what makes these nature abstracts most interesting is how you the viewer perceive the stories told. I look forward to your perceptions of this highly illustrated tree. My abstract photographs are best viewed in the larger format to see the plethora of imagery. I am wondering why the dark man on the far left who appears to be wearing a chef’s hat is leaving the scene? Is there danger threatening those who live in this unusual landscape?
