I was attracted by the contrasting textures of pebble, seaweed and sand,
and by the simple, abstract hieroglyph of a strand of seaweed.

These are striking in their simplicity – and they hover on the border between realistic and abstract, which I think can be a good place to be.
Thanks Lynn. It is indeed a very good place to be – I spend a great deal of time there. I tend to see the world in terms of patterns – whether regular or abstract – and to look for relationships either between object and object, or object in space (as in these images) The objects then are no longer real, they are component elements within a pattern seeking to evoke an appropriate response within the viewer.
The simplicity of these is lovely. This post prompted me to return to/find your earlier beautiful seaweed posts. You have created some wonderful images and the ‘characters’ you find in them are perfect.
Many thanks Noeline. The simple can speak volumes and is a constant source of interest to me. You have referred to the earlier seaweed posts and you saw the recent ‘Less is more’ and ‘Keeping it simple’. I have also donecountless posts on grasses in a variety of seasons and moods. Yes, simple is good!!
