Emotion Quote #279

Emoticon

Emoticon

“Human behavior flows from three main sources: desire, emotion, and knowledge.”
PLATO

I found this urban emoticon during one of my solo photo walks. Love the frozen smiley made up by the decaying wood and the rusty iron. I’m sure this smiley has been here well before the first online irony marks appeared. This symbol looks like a sad joke mark. Did a little post processing to highlight the texture of the decaying wood. The complementary colors and the tight framing contribute to the abstract nature of the photograph.

“There is no abstract art. You must always start with something. Afterward you can remove all traces of reality.”

PABLO PICASSO

Walking downtown Harrisburg I noticed this statue. The abstract nature of the contemporary art caught my attention. Liked the contrast between the convoluted reflections of the statue and the straight lines of the background buildings. It symbolises to me the urban isolation and loneliness of millions of people.
