The Weekly Photo Challenge this time relates to merge — the world is made up of many things. There is a saying that opposites attract, and this is true for relationships and other things. What about photography? Many surprises can come out of merging two different entities into one. Sometimes this fusion of the elements is what we call art.
When I think of merge, many ideas come to mind. The two photos below express this challenge.
First up, a photo I took at the Queensland Art Gallery in Brisbane. There are 4 components that have been merged to enable this medium to be created: the projection screen, the rear projector, the video being projected onto the back of the screen, as well as the human hands used to create bird shapes (the hands can be seen to the top right of this photo in the full-sized version).
Next up, a photo I took of a bridge crossing the Brisbane River. Its lights merge with the construction cranes in the distance to give the impression that the lights are also cranes.
