It Rained


What were once wires.

Art. Sort of.

Remember those wires that I published a week or so ago? Welp, I found another open AT&T telephony box. So, I did the only thing that I would do. I made more pictures. If I were a bad guy, I could have reached in and yanked out the nest. That would have shut down I don’t know how many homes’ internet and telephone service.

But. That’s not me.

I just make pictures of stuff.

So.

I photographed the wires again with the intent of doing something to them in post production. I made them as minimalistic as I could without dropping out shape, texture and form.

To me, the picture looks like multi-colored flames. To you? I don’t know. You tell me.

Because, Yanni. Laurel.

By the way, it’s no big mystery. It’s all about sonic frequencies and the human ear and brain. And, your ability to process sound. Because our big computers have been fine tuned to listen to music (It’s very easy to do), I could flip one switch and lower the bass. Lower the bass and you hear Laurel. Retune the bass to something less invasive and you hear Yanni. Same machine. Same speakers. Same ears.

Music theory and its more technical cousin, sound theory, isn’t easy to learn. But, once you start, everything falls into place. I suppose it helps that I have a very sound foundation in color theory and the optical side of physics. I really didn’t study it. I didn’t need to in college. I mostly read about it because it affects what I do in my world. I think if you are serious about making pictures you should too.

    • I just want the tomatoes, strawberries and hot peppers to grow. Of course, I have to race the dogs to the strawberries… those little jerks.

  1. I can relate, somewhere I developed a layperson appreciation of physics. Even becoming a Through the Wormhole addict. It’s all about the waves man… oh, and particles. 😉
