3/15/2016 - Thinking Outside the Box - Grasses - Quote - Walker Evans - Seeing

Grasses, Kenilworth/Winnetka Beach, March-2016.

Notice the splash of white substance against cement wall.  Looks like winter trees to me. When I saw this photograph in my mind, I thought of Walt Whitman's Poem SONG OF MYSELF.   Image was shot from high above.  Shot was not approachable from all sides.

"Leaving aside the mysteries and the inequities of human talent, brains, taste, and reputations, the matter of art in photography may come down to this:  it is the capture and projection of the delights of seeing; it is defining of observation full and felt."
~ Walker Evans
