Not long ago I was waiting in the car. The rain was pelting down. Without the wipers to clear the windshield, the scene gradually dissolved into this beautiful image.
In real life it’s a row of nondescript buildings with electrical wires passing overhead. But on this day…a dreamscape.
Yes it is a lovely shot. 👏
The impression at the very first look seemed slightly sad, possibly, but almost immediately became much more universal. The photo kind of melts into connections or likenesses between imagined buildings and imagined human faces, and then their expressions become fluid. Like real life. It’s a beautiful photograph.
Thank you. That is just what I thought, the buildings looked liked faces (I almost always think this about a house, but with the blurring of the details, it’s even more, I think). This picture also reminds me of my eyesight before I had the lenses implanted with my cataract surgery – I am extremely neaersighted and before the surgery, if I wanted to retreat from the world, I would take off my glasses. My vision was much worse than this, but this is a milder version of what I saw – the world with no detail, softer, easier. Well, with the surgery I had to have my vision corrected with the lenses, so though my eyes are still structured as they were, I have permanent lenses and clear vision as far as correcting the nearsightedness. That is a good thing, but I miss being able to see the world in this way, like this photo.
That’s pretty cool. The rain has made the scene very impressionistic. I am especially drawn to what it does to the horizontal lines of the electrical wires in the skyline.
Yes, me too. The lines of water vs the lines of the wires and how they blur and warp.
Yes. sometimes you need to look at vs. look through a window.
Thanks for sharing this remarkable image
Thank you. I love how the world softened and blurred as I was sitting the car waiting and I just had to take a picture.
Your artist eye is amazing, that is a wonderful photo and composition!
Thank you. You know, it is interesting what we overlook in life, isn’t it, when it is (sometimes literally) right in front of us?
Beautiful image, Claudia. Rain in small doses does make the world more beautiful.
Thank you. I’ve always liked rain, for various reasons, but, as you say, not in excess!
So beautiful and dreamlike. Life is a dream!
Thank you. I think it is a nice view of the world.
