This is a fun image I took at Cheekwood Botanical Gardens. I was intrigued by the shapes and by the various shades of the same color caused by the way the light hits this piece of shaped or stamped metal. One person who looked at it saw an alien; another saw a Celtic cross. What do you see?
Why do we take the images we take? What factors influence our choices of what we make images of? How do our personal history, our culture and belief systems effect what we photograph and what we see? I've sometimes seen a photo and said--to myself or aloud--"It would never have occurred to me to photograph that." Why DO we see what we see?
Back to this photograph. What did you see? Why did you see in it what you saw? It's a fun question and one that might produce some insight if you stay with it for a bit.
