Ueno: Deconstructed Constructions

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2010

The world in which we live is full of rectangles, squares, angles, triangles, and so on.  Most everything can be reduced to these simple shapes.  Even the organic nature of plants lends themselves to be studies as shapes.

Here in the back streets of Ueno, all of the shapes come colliding together.  The round leaves, contrasting with the angular structures.  They all work together to form an interesting picture of Tokyo that I love.

Just Some Extra Ordinary Doors and Windows

As I continue my pursuit of the geometrical beauty found in the Tokyo Megacity, I sometimes wonder how all these people that live literally on top of their neighbors keep their peace of mind.  I need my space, or at least a bit of solitude where I can organize and calm my thought.  I am know that behind these doors and windows the inhabitants are able to breathe a bit more freely.  It is their own personal domain.  Or in some cases it is part of a public interaction space where they can drink, eat and be merry with friends.

Doors, and windows divide us from each other, yet they are portals.  They allow, at the discretion of those involved, to pass from one side to the other.

Geometrical State of Mind

Tuesday, July 6th, 2010

These days I seem to be tipping my hat to the old masters with my obsession with shape and forms in my photographs.  The geometrical shapes are popping out at me from all sides of the road.  It is almost if i see the shapes first and then what they actually represent second.

I do not mind this obsession.  Only by working on the obsession can I figure out why I have become fixated on shapes.  The more I photograph and construct the images in this way, the closer I can begin to fit all the pieces of the puzzle together.

I hope I didn’t go off on too much of a tangent.

Feeling a little Abstractish

More and more close ups, segmentation.

I am becoming to see in abstractions.

Circle, Square, Triangle, simple shapes with deep meaning.

The circle the is no end, there is no beginning there are no corners.

The line loops around completely into its self.

Zen, Happiness, Circle

Etched ever so with a marker onto its new home, floating and waiting to be
