Likeness,similarity & analogy

I like photographs where there are likeness, not only in a direct way but also in different conjugations. You know that I’m stingy with words…so a picture is worth a thousand words….so please see the following examples 🙂  In this pictures the likeness & similarities are clear: I insert some highlights to indicate what captured my attention.

A little tip..

One of the way to learn how to take a good shot is the following: look for a very bad, ugly, nasty, unsightly, foul, unpleasant place ( in your home too , or in another place ) and try to make it beautiful 🙂 In every place there is a hidden nice, lovely, little side…it’s a very good exercise of composition to find it.

I found in my garden some flowers…Ok, they are not very unpleasant..but I think that they are quite meaningless. So I tried to “transform” the picture in a “pictorial” photo, in a “sort of” painting.
