Am I progressing or achieving anything. I seem to go in fits and starts and find it much easier to read about what others are doing rather than to do anything myself. During a recent communique on the OCA site about metaphor, I posted the above photograph that I had taken a few days ago. I wondered if too much was read into the photograph or in fact nothing at all. Some fell into the latter category and a few comments posted words that I had felt when taking the photo. There were also some thoughts that were certainly beyond my own but I could relate to them on reflection. Were these of true metaphor, or were they feelings evoked by the picture – again some of both I think.
This was a valuable exercise to me and aided my understanding of reading a photograph / art where I feel that I am still in infant school.
I have been taking photographs for meeting the exercises for part 2 and also for the assignment 2 without spending time writing these up in my blog and Word files. So now againI will have a flurry of activity – not good, I think, and feel that I need to have a more continuous effort rather than having this daunting task of writing it all up.
