Confused!
Question: Why do I like this photo so much?
Or, if you like it, why?

Like it's out of some creepy movie



I'm trying to figure out why I like it....

Actually, this one I don't care for so much.
I don't like the coloring -- white + green on the wall under the switch.
And it's grainy.

The one between the stacks with the darness and the cross? That one was nice.

Sure, IGNORE THE QUESTIONS and be all, "I hate you and yuor photos, ABM."

Geez.

*rolls eyes*



Whoa. That was supposed to be jokey and lighthearted, but it makes me sound like a jerkface! Eep! I usually like most of your stuff, and was surprised with that self-deprecating photo post a few weeks ago... but I suspect the reason you like this so much is b/c it looks all unnatural and Hard Copy Does A Piece on Abandoned Mental Hospital So They Shoot Reinactments For The Show To Make It Look Creepy. I think demi_deity does a good job picking out things you like... but they are the parts that I *dislike*.

I do a very good job of making people sound like jerks. It is my talent.

Maybe it is the institutional feel or it, what with my being crazy 'n all. The white walls are kind of neat in a creepy way.

My typoes are teh aewsomes.

Also, I hate you and your photos, ABM. Also your typos.

Me too, rianwyn. Me too.

The reason I like it is the color.

There's something about the way the green swoosh in the lower-right is echoed in the stacks, and the interplay of the springy green, the orange-y reds, and the brown, surrounded by the white that looks so light-washed.

That explanation sounds all sophisticated 'n shit.

I don't like it much... it hurtd my eyes... in small form, it's really bright and kind of off-putting, and in its big form, it's kind of blurry.

*shrug*

Well, *I* like it because there's the whole symbolic light switch plate and books both being in color which OF COURSE means that reading can turn on your brain and give you knowledge. (yes, I'm a book dork)

And there's the fact that it's so different from most of your other photos, which are normally kinda dark. (but lovely! ::smile::)

And the subject/s are framed so beautifully.

Dunno. I'm not an art critic. But I like it, too......

You might like it because the books apply so much of a guide with how the lines are contorted with the fish-eye. Plus, the extreme contrast is always nice.

I'm not a fan of fisheye though, so that's pure guessing on my end.
abmann From: abmann Date: May 23rd, 2008 07:36 pm (UTC) (Link)
Ah! I think you hit on something there. I do like the contrast. mm. Contrasty. The extreme white kinda frames the books in the middle.

This entry seems like some bizarre friendship quiz. :\

I WILL SEND THIS TO FIVE OF MY FRIENDS SO THAT MY CRUSH WILL KISS ME!

THe green bit on the right has good symmetry and makes the green books stand out more. The colors of the books are random enough to be weird but regular enough to make you look for a pattern. The distortion and the way it's round make you kind of think maybe it's abstract before you figure out what it really is.

And I like books.
