Drifting Heart

By sherlob
The latest in my ongoing project of incorporating hearts into my landscapes.

These (just like the clock shots from a while ago - a project I aim to return to at some point) are marmite images - the landscape purists hate the idea of introducing such an artificial prop into the scene. Personally, I see photographs as a form of narrative and by using props in this way I hope engage the viewer in a different type of narrative than what a straight landscape would offer. In short whilst I want the image to retain aesthetic value, I also want you the viewer to do some work when looking at them. For the purists - I have a few straight shots from this location too - one day they may even find their way into my PF.

I am obviously not a purist because I really like this. The light and colour are beautiful.

I like the idea of your projects. The objects add that extra dimension.
Not saying I don't like the straight shots, there is room for both.
