What Do You See?

I’ve been in Munich for a few days this week, a combined business and pleasure trip. 

Arrived at the hotel, I opened the door and inspected my room. One thing stopped me in my tracks and reminded me of Thoreau’s words: ”The question is not what you look at, but what you see”.

Some people would simply see an (admitelly beautiful) lamp; I would see something more. I knew from the very beginning this would make a great black and white abstract photograph. I just loved the shadow and light play! I was itching to play with the many photographs I'd taken and find ”the one” but didn’t have time to get to it until I was back home. This is the result. What do you think? is it ”the one”?

Hmmm … I just realized I’d found another beautiful lamp-turned-abstract photograph right here, at home. Here it is!

This is the more prosaic picture I’ve taken with my phone. Same lamp. Big difference.
