365.209 a pillow of winds

Well, I’m still struggling with how to depict “don’t you wonder sometimes about sound and vision.” I don’t even have a twinkling of an idea about how to go about shooting such an open-ended statement, and this lack of a clue has spilled over into the rest of my shooting, and even into my other free-time activities.

It bothers me more and more each day.

So today I offer the wadded-up reflector, abstracted, again, but this time with its pixels punished severely.

I’m torn, here. On the one hand, this pixel-punishing has a relationship to painting, somehow, and definitely to pure art-for-art’s-sake-iness. On the other hand, it feels like cheating, like I couldn’t be bothered to actually work with the camera, so instead I twist the result until I get happy with it.

Does anyone else ever feel this?

Anyway, I still like this picture, mostly, so I guess that’s what matters.
