The longer you look at an object, the more abstract it becomes, and, ironically, the more real. (Walt Disney)

A powerful collaboration had been at work: the rain and the wind – with maybe an occasional helping hand from someone passing by.

I had groceries to put away, but my camera insisted on being allowed out of the shoulder-bag.

Just as well. A couple of hours later, the poster-pasters had torn everything down and were slopping paste over a new batch.

What moves men of genius, or rather what inspires their work, is not new ideas, but their obsession with the idea that what has already been said is still not enough. (Edgar Degas)

  1. What splendid photos! You seem to have a particular eye and affinity for these – what can I say? “decomposing” objects that are composing themselves into abstract works of art.
    (I think of some of your photographs of chalkmark, etc. graffiti that have the same quality.
