I clicked on like for this, in a state of confusion apparently, to see WHO liked this and counted my click as a like. I don't like.
I feel about this the way I do about musicians smashing instruments on stage. It's vulgar and wasteful.

To clarify the shot, I had picked up this Minolta lens, at a flea marked, for $1, which was all broken up, with the front of it completely gone. I bought a few other smashed lenses, for next to nothing, to create a shot like this. Sorry if the shot bothered so many of you.

An interesting response to something that you know nothing of the story behind it.

I kind of figured something like this. I couldn't imagine throwing a perfectly good lens into the surf just to be able to shoot a few pictures of it.

I like it.

Thank you and I appreciate it. I would not destroy a working lens for the shot. Heck, I even have oldish malfunctioning lenses that I can't bring myself to part with.

Just as a side note for everyone, the pic is posted under 'experimental'

Well it was good art just because it was certainly evocative, at least in this site :)


I try to make art by pushing buttons

Hey Sibil, I loved this shot but was wondering how you got the lens to stay still in the incoming wave. Did you have it anchored in some way? It's got me thinking of doing similar things...

Thank you very much.
The lens is leaning against a rock, about twice its size, and is recessed into the sand just a little bit. . The rock is covered by the water. I took a bunch of shots in succession to get this one. The waves dislodged the lens in less than a minute.

Yeah, that's right. I/we knew nothing of the story behind it.
The image, without context, left to "speak" for itself, I found somewhat vulgar.

It's "interesting" you chose to call me out on it as this IS a photography site, where we look for imagery. My reaction was/is as legitimate as yours.

Thanks for the explanation Sibil. As Kaiser Soze pointed out, it is evocative. In my case provocative.

No problems. Abstract / experimental is supposed to leave something for the viewer's imagination / interpretation, so I think. It can go in any direction. I just didn't expect it to go in the direction it did.
