Just playing around. I know this will make some a little nuts, but reading Alain's essay, I wanted to try and express visually what I experienced when I was engaged by this view from the top of Mingus Mountain in the Verde Valley of Arizona. I have been thinking along these lines for several months: Silly thought for a former research scientist, but Rob C's brief essay in another thread
also got me thinking and the take home message for me was that this sort of stuff is fun! And, most importantly, it is for
me; so I tried to go outside the lines. It is not intended to fool anybody, but simply to evoke a feeling, a sense of WOW at standing by the overlook and... words fail, which actually means blah, blah, blah
I posted this here really to inform my curiosity (about potential viewpoints and criticisms) as well as to reject my own shyness. Hopefully, it's not perceived as a cheap trick.
Also, Andrew Molitor's essay on creativity factored into my experiment and for which, I thank him, too.
As Andrew wrote:
Is this a success? Yes. I have accomplished what I set out to do, which was make some sort of creative thing out of a mundane thing, a little cup. I like the sequence. It’s pretty, it looks the way I wanted it to look.
Only my little cup happened to be a mundane landscape in the middle of the day with lousy light
