When I shot the (unedited) images that you are going to see next, you may relate to images of our galaxy or to a microscopic view of our body cells. No, I am not an astronaut nor a scientist…
I shot these at home. These are water droplets on a spider’s net, resting in the gutter of a roof terrace. What was I doing there? Enjoying and shooting the sunrise.
Either way, these images share distinctive features. Whilst being connected, droplets are individually positioned, and the spider web provides the boundaries for the existence of their uniqueness. And even the solitary leaf has made room for itself, connecting and supporting the web structure.
These are the beautiful words of Ben Huberman, editor at WordPress, when proposing the Weekly Photo Challenge: “Boundaries impose limits on us, whether they’re social constructs or real, physical objects — like the security rail seen below, separating ferry passengers from the icy waters of the Strait of Georgia. They’re there to stop us from doing or saying what we actually want to. But they also give structure to our actions and frame our movements. In photography, they help our eyes make sense of what we see and convey a sense of visual narrative. They constantly invite us to push against them.”
