Mundane Art Contest

in mundaneart •  27 days ago

As I was thinking about @kus-knees latest "mundane art" contest

https://steemit.com/photography/@kus-knee/the-old-gog-presents-the-mundane-as-art-no-3-damaged-asphalt-10-sbd-prize

and on my way home after dinner in the restaurant at the hotel next door.....
I stopped to take this night time shot of some damaged and discolored ashphalt.

I think that AshphaltArtIMG_20171117_2122268.jpgmy shoe at the bottom of the picture makes it especially endearing, don't you think? :-)

.

By the way, here's the entrance to the hotel next door:
(yeah, yeah, I know it says "EXIT". Use your imagination!)

This is a defeat for marketing.. your shoe becomes famous for your inspiration and not for its brand name! Enjoy your stay! :)

·

I know, eh. I should have photo shopped @onceuponatime onto the shoe!

you have an eye for the abstract !! ;) :D :D ... And the shoe ? Adds charm to the abstract :) ... nice and easy and mundane. And yes, the way you enter is the way you exit :). The circle of life completes itself on the same point :D :D ... I too am an art person. I paint, to be more specific :) .. Check out my blog if you have the time :)

·

I'll agree with you completely. The way in is the way out.

Go inside.

·
·

absolutely !!! :) Dust to Dust -the final destination :) ... Followed you :)

I would be surprised if you could find a asphalt without a damage, but art forgives everything.
Have a nice stay.
Thank you

One of my Mantras in life!

·
·

Great one

·

I also agree With You @artgalleryraka

Your shoe is very photogenic and charismatic :)

·

My shoes take after me. In fact, I taught them just about everything they know :-)

that pictures made me think deep!!
Lol thanks for sharing!

·

I hope that you didn't think so deep that you were unable to come back up to the surface here with the rest of us :-)

Interesting concept, mundane art... the beauty found in unlikely spaces. Wasn't it Leonardo Da Vinci who taught his students how to see/draw better by observing cracks in the wall and the pattern in stains.

As a poet, I feel that the world is teeming with poems, waiting to be perceived and picked from the air =) @onceuponatime

·

Picking poems from the air! And from trees, and amidst the flowers of meadows too.
And I hope you will catch a big one in the sea!

·
·

Thank you, @onceuponatime ! If you've the time/interest, I hope you might enjoy these very short poems of mine, featured on NPR: https://steemit.com/poetry/@yahialababidi/my-poems-featured-on-npr-20171116t14218583z

@onceuponatime,
Artistic eye can be found in anywhere! You have proven that! Actually this is wonderful, and I can assure you have a High Quality camera lenses too! Hope to see more great photography from Greece!

Cheers~

·

Well, it is a cell phone camera, but yes, the Blackberry Priv has a very good lens.

·
·

@onceuponatime,
I thought it was a Cell Phone camera! But it's a high quality one!

Cheers~

watch your picture for a while, and then art is like that, everyone sees what their mind allows them to see, so ...

·

What did your mind allow you to see (but don't scare me lol)?

·
·

I did not expect you to ask, you would think I'm crazy, but I see the face as a kind of an Ogre seen in profile. I see perfectly the nose in the most pronounced crack, let me know if you can see it, it's a profile face haha (I'm ashamed)

·
·
·

Ogres, like beauty, are in the eye of the beholder :-)

the exit from the real world maybe

·

I left the real world long before this :-)

·
·

haha that thought did come to me a bit since you are now a Greece resident :-)

My first thought when I saw the broken asphalt was, this was probably taken in Greece XD

·

Did they shoot that movie "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly" in Greece?

Nice pics.

This is my natural leg art.

Good pics but i want to see more green in cities.

A pic of medellin colombia my city :)

·

Green in Athens... not plenty but some

These amazing places. Photographs so truly convey the beauty of color contrast. You are a professional photographer.

Do you look at your shoes or to crack in the ground?
They both have to stop

Wow... Nice click

I took this concept of mundane art and connected it with the Japanese sentiment of Wabi-Sabi. Check out the flawed beauty photos I took of my winter-driven Evo X at https://steemit.com/life/@xsid/flawed-beauty-my-wabi-sabi-winter-driven-evo-photo-gallery

great art
thank's for sharing

It indeed increased the depth of the image (Shoe)
Enjoy the stay buddy
Nicely taken image of the 1st 1 :)
