Colors – I think I can Red
This is one of the “things” left over from when the park was a gasworks. I think they let people (with permits for the kids) paint the stuff sometimes. This one kind of messes with you. You are look at the end of some kind of tank but the round end is going in (away from you). It had red shinny paint on it and the face but someone had just painted in with a flat red so the colors looks strange.
Painting is an additive art. The artist adds to the canvas until they stop with their version of reality. Digital photography is subtractive art. First we throw away 90 percent of reality then remove what is left bit by bit until we have only the reality we wish to show. Flickr is like fun. PPG is like work. A camera is a machine of light and time with the purpose of capturing a luminous moment. Like the eye it is a tool of the mind.
