The Magic of the Cities.

Zen promotes the rediscovery of the obvious, which is so often lost in its familiarity and simplicity. It sees the miraculous in the common and magic in our everyday surroundings. When we are not rushed, and our minds are unclouded by conceptualizations, a veil will sometimes drop, introducing the viewer to a world unseen since childhood. ~ John Greer

Octuber 2011 Theme Day: Mystery Object

The Eisenstadt Sphere
Oedenburger Str. 2

As photographers, we must focus on the details of life and bypass the generalities. 

There is a saying in Zen: examine the living words and not the dead ones. 
We must open a direct line to reality, unclouded by the dust of the past - see Eden before the expulsion. 
Our challenge is to see the living fact - to become intimate with life. 
John Greer.  Artist's Statement (Fragment)

It's a fabulous image Carraol,I think perhaps it's a reflection off something in the path of the strong sunlight in the right hand corner!!

You have to tell us how this was produced. It looks like it could be something with your lens and the angle of the sun but you could have other tricks up your sleeve. There's a scary science-fiction element here.

Something else I want to note: I am a great admirer of your photography and vision. However, I have rheumatoid arthritis that affects my hands. My typing is poor. I often prefer to dictate with voice-recognition software. That doesn't work when there is sound coming from the computer. Maybe I didn't notice it, but could you add a button to the blog to click off the sound? Perhaps there is one and I'm just missing it. Thanks.

Un saludo y hasta pronto pues seguimos disfrutando de buenas temperaturas inusuales en el Norte de España.
