For me the notion of layers is multidimensional when it comes to conceptual photography. It speaks of layers of history, architectural layers that fall away into the diminishing perspective of an image. Layers designed by the intricate perfection of nature, layers created by human hands, layers that seem to occur as if by accident. Layers of thought that emerge anew from layered intent and knowledge to create a language of sensory experience.

Thank you Rabirius! 🙂
These are wonderful. This is a perfect concept for you, since you’re probably the most multi-layered person I’ve ever met. Your photos really make me want to see España. Venice too.
You say such wonderful things Bill. I think you would like Spain a lot, and I think you would like Venice too, especially if you like very old architecture, and copious amounts of history. Then again you know more about Spanish history than I do.
I love old architecture, as long as I don’t have to live in it. 🙂
I once lived in a very old house where nothing was level. Dated back to the 1600’s. One of my favourites to date.
“There was a crooked man, who had a crooked house.” 🙂
Did he have a crooked nose?
I don’t know. I could only remember the start and finish to the poem.
“There was a crooked man, and he walked a crooked mile,
He found a crooked sixpence against a crooked stile;
He bought a crooked cat which caught a crooked mouse,
And they all lived together in a little crooked house.” – Mother Goose
I guess it would be reasonable to assume that he also had a crooked nose. Just a guess though… 🙂
Seems like it would fit. “He had a crooked nose and a crooked garden hose.”
Now that is layers! I like the layers of light-and-dark too.
I promised JZ some golden/orange snaps (calendulas) much like your own flower above—great minds think alike? (Even down to the bugs …)
I wondered if I should have mentioned tonal layers, but I suppose you have done that for me. Great minds do indeed think alike, must be a Leo thing, or something. Calendulas ay? Love ’em, especially growing them from seed.
Mmhhh, I could not decide which of the photos I liked best. All are wonderful in their own way. But if I had to umbedingt, then I would probably choose Almeria. It’s the mood that you captured so beautifully.
Thank you! It’s interesting that you chose that image as the one you liked the most, it’s the one I’m using as my front cover for my new e-book 🙂
Have a great Sunday!
Such lovely pictures, especially that first one “Dahlia, grown from seed”. Love the dark white colour.
Thank you Christov, the Dahlia looks great in colour too, but I like this version too for the same reasons.
Al perfect examples ishaiya, and skillfully captured! Love that brooch 🙂
