Analogue Love

An analogy is a comparison, a relationship among several thoughts or concepts – a means to compare and relate two or more objects or experiences, identifying and appreciating general and specific characteristics, and concluding in a thought or conduct based in the existence of their similarities. In this case, it relates to the incidence of light on an object.

40 Weeks and A Mirror: Life taking Shape

I’m not talking about the beauty of it’s colours or it’s shapes – I’m talking about something different. Something that resonates within us. That beauty depends on the observer, or you could say that it depends on the resonance of the receiver. With time, I could define it this way. Before I used to say what moved me to take certain photos was the space in between the matter.
