Blog

Motivation is a photography blog that discusses the creative aspects of photography. The posts will include thoughts about images and their interpretation, photographers and their work, technique, workflow, my ongoing projects, and perhaps even the occasional off topic rant.

Quilt Mural Abstract: Bloomfield

Today I thought I would post another image from my "Mural Project", where I make photos of small parts of an urban mural that, to me, looks like a piece of 'stand-alone artwork'. In the past, when I have posted images from this project, I have only shown the photo of the final small segment of the mural that is my stand alone piece (a molecule of art as I like to call it, since it is just a tiny piece of the whole). For this one, I took a quick shot of the entire mural, as I thought people might be interested in seeing the type of mural that I am picking the pieces from.

Below is the entire mural, which is on the side of a building in Bloomfield. The mural was so large that I couldn't fit the entire thing in a single photo with the 50mm lens I had on because I couldn't back up any further. The molecule of art  above is about half outside the image below. The green and purple portion of the quilt on the lower right make up the top half of the 'molecule'. 

By the way, three or four storefronts down is Taste Of India, my favorite Indian restaurant in Pittsburgh!.
