I posted these elsewhere, but have dragged them kicking and screaming into this themed thread. I took Strand's pear and bowls image as the starting point for some exploration of same. Not in the style of, but influenced by... I have a large book of his images, so will spend some time with that before adding more. DP2Q Here I set the pear in the centre of the frame, with the curves and light reflections of the plates spinning around, trying to distract you from the pear. I don't know what your experience is, but my eye keeps coming back to the pear. Here I went for more of an abstract. I like the scarred-skull quality to the pear, like a scene gone wrong from the end of 2001: A Space Odyssey.
