Open for Interpretation (and Mental Masturbation)


1- A geometric series where two elements are seperated by a variable distance sequentially decreasing to zero.

2- A paradigm of modern day relationships. Strangers. Then they meet. Then they're together. Then one is left behind.

3- A small group of birds clinging to each other while they live through the end of another day, for it takes strength and determination to witness the passage of time, and the prospects of inevitable darkness.

4- Seven birds on a power cable at sunset. Nice colors. Get a life.

Disregarding the fact that the bird farthest to the left has an avoidant personality disorder, I think the real question is, if you shoot one how many would remain? 6 or none?

It kind of reminds me of that old Alfred Hitchcock movie "The Birds" I saw that movie when I was around 6 yrs old and now whenever I see birds lined up like this it gives me the creeps. (shudders)

yes mirvat good point... I hadn't looked at it that way. Samer seems to see it the same way. I don't know. I think I'll post something about this difference in perspective later.

sorry mia..

from right to left:
one single bird
a couple [...s'aimer c'est regarder tous deux dans la même direction.]
a second couple [taking a distance]
a third couple [looking opposite directions] what would Freud think of that analysis??

I love the body language of the first two on the left. You could say they were fighting or they are strangers but they don't seem like they fit together, each is going/looking in the opposite direction. I don't feel any chemistry there :).( oh! that was what nour said too, I'm not copying you, promise!
Fouad, all of the above. I really like the second analysis.

Very nice picture...simple and rich....
As for relationships: I guess the most relaxed one is the one on the right; relaxed and watching, even his side of the cable is brighter!

been coming back and taking a look at this pic alot..

finally!! i see.
it is not right to left, nor left to right..

it , to me, starts at the center (the two close birds). with two opposite dirctions to go, two alternatives to chose from.. (right) to take a chance and be in love now with the possibility of being alone/hurt someday. Or (left) to keep your distance and never be hurt.

sweet fouad, have i told you lately that i love your blog. it moves me, inspires me..
