Zindanfel's recent activity

  • Thank you for your comments. It's very rewarding when viewers' perceptions open new and varied notions about the themes or "message" of a photo. The result is antithesis of Amazon-style, i.e., ...
  • Alluring evocation of "Stranger In A Strange Land."
  • I've never been to Cuba, but I did have a '51 Chevy.  Compared to today's cars, it was a clunker, despite being only 6 years old and in good condition at the time. I'm not fully persuaded for a ...
  • Replied in Mapplethorpe
    A modern "The Thinker" (Rodin) contemplates Mapplethorpe. Inclusion of the right-side room corner (floor) seems essential to carry sense of depth in the scene.
  • I enjoyed seeing three interpretations -- this Judas tree exhibits multiple "looks" as smoothly as a department store mannequin. Perhaps the challenge continues in weeks ahead as the tree leafs ...
  • Mike's comments on the texture/color echoes among pavers, bricks, and woman's hair perfectly identify a strong visual theme of the photo.  The warmth of human presence is palpable. I would suggest ...
  • Monochrome is a good choice for this subject which seems to ask a viewer to contemplate the ubiquitous form-vs-function question.   Of course, small birds that find their way here would just enjoy ...
  • Replied in A mystery
    San Luis = Saint Louis? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gateway_Arch You Came A Long Way From St. Louis You came a long way from St. Louis, you climbed the ladder of success, I've seen the town and ...
  • Replied in Untitled
    Seattle.
  • Replied in Quest
    Clearly this is sacred space, and would not be less so even were the building not there. The photograph can challenge a viewer to contemplate his/her/human assumptions about foundations of both ...
  • This photograph is so exceptionally wonderful that any commentary I could add is no more than faint praise. The image is flamboyant, yet dense.  A viewer is flooded with sensations of the arts of ...
  • The first image reminds me that bluing was a whitening agent my mother added during laundry washing back in the '40s.  Also, I like Minnie's insight about hanging laundry's appeal to curious snoops. ...
  • This is our kid's school playground. I was waiting for dismissal at 3:30 p.m. to walk her home. Sunset that day would have been within 90 minutes later. The "gnomon" is a tether-ball pole. The ball ...
  • Replied in Havana
    I wouldn't have guessed you shot using a TBW (Tinted Bus Window) filter -- colors look normal to me. The high angle on the scene could arouse viewer's uncertainty about his/her perch, if not for ...
  • Replied in The Duel
    Excellent for both the eye (photo) and the mind (narrative). The combo opens speculation on what might be the boy's potential narrative. Perhaps this also could be  "The Dual."
  • #1 has a definite Contemporary vibe:  A fawning mob in unquestioning service to an authoritarian ruler.  Inevitable undoing follows?
  • https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wingtip_device
  • Somewhere over the rainbow, follow the yellow brick road.
  • Replied in Mon and gnomon
  • I like Mike's allusion to the structure  as eyeball-like, a thought that opens up ideas of theater's organic role in cultural life.
