Almost Like Art | Clouded Eye

Copyright ImageMain Image


It has been a long time since I last published an “Almost Like Art” post, and that’s mostly because when I take a photo of a brick wall, it looks exactly like a brick wall. I have friends who are artists because they have the skill and ability to make a brick wall look like art. It’s like I stalled, or took a different branch in my photographic evolution. So, while I can make sure everything in the frame is interesting and basically in focus, I can’t do it to the degree where someone’s going to shell out $200 for a limited edition print.


Technical Stuff: The idea was to put the camera lens against the peephole of my door. It’s a shot I’ve taken before, but I couldn’t find it so I thought I could recreate it… but I pressed the trigger before the camera was against the door. So, long story short, the light meter fucked up and the shot was overexposed. Taa-daa, it’s art. And now that it’s in your computer’s Internet cache you owe me $200. No personal cheques.


While you’re searching for your credit card the song I’ve posted is called “Is Is”, from the 2007 EP of the same name by Yeah Yeah Yeahs.
