Today it’s another photograph from walking along Brighton seafront. I was looking for abstraction from reality, photographing downwards from the seafront walk towards the beach using a fairly wide angle to include the pebble beach, sea edge and sea. I first tried this picture out by removing much of the detail just finding stripes, look at it with half shut eyes, but then I preferred the infinite details to be found in both sea and beach.
I suppose the intention of taking a photograph is to find a viewpoint that the eye naturally wouldn’t, narrowing in or angling, whereas the natural eye would include more. I suppose that is the ‘art’ of photography. Rather like a poem does to feelings and language.
