    Não resisti a criar as minhas próprias ‘bolas de sabão’. Esta foto tem todas as características que me atraíram na foto do Fabrício: dois planos de foco distintos e formas circulares e dominar o plano de fundo. Mas mais uma vez a nossas abordagens fotográficas divergiram. A Fabrício optou por uma cena urbana, eu por uma natural, com algum surrealismo pelo meio. E como não podia deixar de ser, os planos de foco-desfoco estão completamente invertidos nas nossas fotos. Tal e qual os nossos pontos de vista 🙂 Ah, e já repararam que a primavera chegou?

  • My first thought when I looked at this photograph was the very Belgian “art nouveau” architecture. This style, first developed by Architect Victor Horta in the early 1890s, uses natural elements like plants and insects in a quite flamboyant fashion. One of its characteristics is the entire lack of (or broken) symmetry in its underlying design. This style was born in Brussels Belgium and then spread across the Europe with rich examples found all across the continent; from the city of Lodz in Poland to Porto in Portugal. Its core life span was just a mere 15 to 20 years: its, at the time considered too flamboyant, style was its eventual demise; but the examples lasted to become revered and Horta to become a reference of world wide architecture. So, living in Brussels, after this my next subject will of course be: Art Nouveau.
