    Coming and Going

    Hi
    I must get around to posting more regularly. I wondered what your thoughts were on this. The reflections are in a piece of art work by Robert Morris that was displayed in the Tate in Liverpool.

    Hi Clive,

    I think it is very creative and nicely photographed.

    Clive, it is an interesting concept. But to be honest, I am not understanding a story this image should be telling. There are 4 shots with peoples' legs shown standing or walking, but there is no clue about why they are there. I don't know how to improve upon what you've done. And, just for the record, since you are creating art, don't feel bad if someone doesn't "get it" or has a different taste. Nice try.

    Thanks for the input. I don't mind if you don't "get it", I'm not even sure if I "get it" and I certainly won't feel bad, I appreciate that people take the time to look, think and comment.
    Personally I find the empty shots (colour or black and white) aesthetically pleasing. I don't know whether they are a great shot or not, but I like the lines and the texture.
    The other shots are there to try to add dynamics to the overall image. There is a story - a person walks in, they come close together, they move off together and then the first person walks off faster. I don't know what the story is - it's up to the imagination. I don't know about it being art, let's class it as observation.
    regards
    Clive

    Nice idea, Clive. The woman in the centre bottom seems to have an extra leg growing out of her right arm, though.
