Is it OK to simply like high resolution?

As in, not trying to justify it through some need, but simply enjoying what it provides in an image?

The overwhelming majority of my images these days lead a completely digital life. I can wiew them as I like, zoom in on that travelling city scape, check out the fabrics of that traditional japanese wedding dress, the adornements of the notre dame, the insane load of stuff on la sagrada familia, the broche of my elderly mother, and the peculiar colour of her eyes inherited by myself and my daughters.

There is just so much information, so much to see and find.

And I like the pictorial effect when you look at an image and there is more, there is no perceptible limit, the image invites you in, to get closer, and when you do, you get rewarded by even more, pulling you in.

The feeling that you are looking through a clear window into another place and time, rather than a painting of it.

I don’t need it. But I enjoy it.
