Our club founders had the idea to replicate a New York Times article in which a group of photographers were given poems to use as inpiration for a series of photographs. They have chosen the following poem by Henry Reed for this month's challenge.

As Don phrased it, the idea is that the topic would be “parts.” Parts, of a car, parts of a person, parts of a device, parts of whatever.

Or as Dave Thomas put it, "parts is parts."

Lets go for “Patterns in close up”. If you get close enough, everything has a pattern but a simple piece of timber, a path of gravel or a pet’s fur coat should do the trick.

July topic, “Mystery”

Submitted by wbristow on Sun, 07/01/2018 - 02:29

“Mystery“, ” ambiguity”, “ uncertainty”. 

 Uncertainty is typically not desirable  in everyday experiences, but uncertainty in the form of ambiguity may be a defining  feature of aesthetic experiences of modern art.

 A painting example is, “Nighthawks“ by Edward Hopper.  

There is also ambiguity in scale for example in aerial photography. 

Another classic example of mystery is the famous painting “Mona Lisa” by Leonardo da Vinci.

 So find a photo that is perhaps confusing or ambiguous and something that you cannot exactly figure out what it is and that may well be an answer to this months topic of “mystery“.
