Seeing Things Differently

This set of images is my attempt to channel one of my fellow shooters, the talented John Bonick. After seeing John's work, which always included a dazzling array of abstract images (he's an abstract painter as well, always looking for inspiration), I gave myself an assignment: try to see the world as John might. Where colors and patterns are the compositional elements; circles and lines are the subjects. He was finding art in decay, in the unnoticed, in the ordinary - and I hadn't seen any of it. So for a few days, I tried. These are my results. Thanks John, for helping me see things differently.

  1. Morry -- I was reading my email (while wearing the scarf you gave me...) and went down the rabbit hole of this blog -- what an incredible journey!! Your photos and descriptions are amazing. I've been hearing so much about this part of the world from Vanessa -- I sent her the link, and am sure she'll enjoy it. Thank you for taking the time to share your journey. I feel well fed from your efforts! -- Joanne
