*Textures Of The Heart* (12 photos) 1622 views :: Ay Da (chiaraluna) Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 421 W: 90 N: 411] (1897) [Group Theme]
there was a time when i didn't understand why someone would want to 'add noise' to an image when as photographers, noise is a thing we're usually anxious to avoid.. but then i began using grain and texture a lot and found it became for me a very important & expressive tool to convey emotions and suggest the rawness of a feeling.. i guess like the brushstrokes of our thoughts and our hearts...

please feel free to add your work which uses texture to express emotion in this way :-)

"Along the hallways of my thought, As if at home, there prowls a cat, A strong, sweet, charming, splendid cat. He mews: the sound is barely caught, So soft and diffident its tone. Cries of contentment or complaint, A throaty resonance contain, A charm, a secret of their own" - Charles Baudelaire

Purple Dreams.. (19 photos) 2404 views :: Ay Da (chiaraluna) Gold Star Critiquer/Gold Star Workshop Editor/Gold Note Writer [C: 421 W: 90 N: 411] (1897)
i love the color purple in all it's glorious hues.. it can be bold, rich, vibrant and strong & subtle, simple, peaceful and soft all at once.. it's perhaps these later qualities that i love the most.. however stressed, disressed or in turmoil i feel, when i see the gentle beauty of a purple haze or an amethyst sky.. all seems right with the world again...

if the eyes are the windows of the soul.. then the face with it's myriad of story-telling expressions.. sometimes transparent as glass through a spontaneous smile or hard as stone that guards the spirit within.. these are the walls...
