Grass moves me ...

Grass moves me ...
A child said What is the grass? fetching it to me with full hands;
How could I answer the child? I do not know what it is any more than he.

o0o it really is so beautiful ... it really is ... and it goes to show
that anything can be the subject of icm ... anything and it changes
things that we might not normally even give a second glance to,
it changes, a slightly faster tilt ... or slower ... whatever ... it looks
different each time you click the shutter ... its almost endless and
remember saying ... it can become addictive ... why ...? because
it opens our eyes to many opportunities .. to try .. and people,
dorrways ... grass as you have shown here ... and wait until you
have the darker nights ... coming home in the car ... be a passenger,
but in the front seat .. .not rear ... somehow it does not work as well
in the rear seats ...:))) how do I know ... I tried it when my Italian
friends were here the other week ... Loreta and I sat in the back
seat ... and I tried to show her how I did it ... it would not work :)
and so the distance .. zooming in ... all these things affect
how the final picture will appear ... its fun ... pleased you decided
to try ... and love the grass ... I feel like a little mouse or rabbit
or hedgehog in the long grass :) or an insect ... is this what it is
like for them I wonder :) oOo

well, already have the experience that especially some clear shapes and color (differences) do matter. It's not a total guess. But yes, it's surprising and wonderful spontaneous (what's already my way to shoot around :D) .
To get a cool stable hand and to know the subjects which fit well is the thing to learn. Thank you for your inspiration!

I was like a mouse in the field .... really hiding between the high grass and flowers. Already that was a special experience !

if I got down to do that ... I would never get up again :)
today the tiny little ducklings ... so sweet ... so tiny ...
and they sat within inches of my feet ... oh that I could
have dared to move and get down to them ... no chance :)
not without frightening them ... poor little things .. I joke
of course ... they were so beautiful ... and they even
fell asleep :)

Well when not in our actions we can always try to be "down to earth" in our attitude and mind ... There is always a place for us to hide !

Very abstract and beautiful! And this is my favorite color! :)
Very interesting quote as well. Makes me think of the show, "Kung Fu." :)

zeze57 has replied to Janet Brien
:)) thank you , yes it's abstract in a way .... but in another way i think it's very real, very sensitive .... the real feeling of being outside. It's exactly this borderline between reality/abstract what is very interesting for me.

When we're outside, when we look with our eyes we don't see still shots (unless we are looking at pics or paintings :D). We move our head, we see sth moving, we feel the wind, or we just look half and see mixed realties .... but there is always the sensation that there is more as just a pic ....

Seen in this way still shots are an abstractness (and not the reality we take them for) and what we call abstractness is often the better way to approach this feeling. Imho :)))
