Serious composers are sometimes amused and surprised when theorists offer analyses of their music. The creative process is essentially intuitive albeit informed by a great deal of prior study and experience. So, when reading an essay by another about something they've written, they may be fascinated by what details and relationships are uncovered and explained. For me, making photographs is intuitive, but not ignorant of all I've absorbed about composition, exposure, perspective, rules of odds and thirds, etc, and years of experience that help me to try to dismiss the cliched and trite. The images below subscribe to my preference for interesting objects as they relate to something else, in this case to the flow of ocean water as it surged in and crept out.
