Real or Imagined?

In most cases, we are more concerned with the material life as opposed to the spiritual or the imaginary life.

This image is of a wood splitter. Most people see it in terms of its functionality in everyday life; others may look at wood splitters in an imaginative way.

Artists, for example, might look at a wood splitter in a way that has never before been seen. Based on patches of tonal shapes and colours, the formal design of a wood splitter might completely disappear.  Its new appearance might be based on an aesthetic in the artists imagination.

During my wildfire evacuation experience in 2017, I came across a wood splitter while out photographing. This is how the wood splitter looked to me that day.

    To go beyond my habitual way of seeing, to discover Beauty afresh, is my goal in photography.
    It satisfies me in ways that nothing else can. Your photograph is a wonder-full example of wht I am aspiring to.
