bright noise

they occur frequently throughout here. in particular in my winter posts. my winter posts are the most similar ones throughout. they are of night walks, snow flurries and flurry stars. the same fields, the same paths. and once in a while, the same one, two or three figures. two is the more common number of them.

like in this one here.



the night was perfect. clear. ice cold. a rather full moon lit up the fields and the dark forest. it was the sharpest night bright you can imagine. and still: the photo in all its hazy noise didn't take note. didn't listen carefully enough. or was it my hand, eye or memory that didn't get it?

Lovely. I thought it was a pastel when I saw it.

Gesa, This beautiful image shows that "noisy camera" can make the serenity of the world, like Edward Steichen's atmospheric photos. Steichen once said, "The mission of photography is to explain man to man and each to himself. And that is the most complicated thing on earth."
You get it. I LOVE this one.
