TREES OF MY NEIGHBOORHOODTrees of Neighborhood
We are in the world, never in its completeness, but encountering some selected aspects of it, selected through the abstraction power of our perception. Last week, I was in my neighborhood impressed by the magnificence and majesty of its sycamore trees. Magnificence, majesty didn’t seem to have any color, but just tonality. Thus I resorted to the abstraction of photography through black & white rendition.

The 35mm prime lens was my primary choice with FUJIFILM camera X-T2. In one case, I used a vintage lens Canon FD manual prime, with an adaptor on X-T10. Actually, the whole experience was triggered by what I perceived through the viewfinder of X100T with its 23mm fixed lens. I came to realize a good camera is not just gear for making photographs, but primarily a tool for perception.

These trees were here way before I came to this world, I hope they’ll be here, way after I go away from this world. 

The pictures I shared this week can be seen in these albums:
