Rarely do I edit

Looking through the viewfinder

I see reality

Imperfection in living colours

Panoramic perception

Despite my failure in focusing

Chasing chances with a lens

This is my world

The blur is my own

Amateur in action

Amateur in life

In this dying macro moment

Before my eyes

I have clarity

 

It’s Open Link Night at dVerse. Come on over and meet some amazing poets.

  1. I appreciate this so much, having recently become enamored of photography and starting a separate blog for it. My passion is macro and you describe it so well–really a quite Zen-like experience.

  4. I do like to capture things with a camera as well… There is something so pleasant when you find the difference between snapshots and photos.

  6. “The blur is my own”. I wish I had written that line, for I feel it in my bones. All those perfectly ours imperfections that dance around the art that is our living makes everything more real, more of our heart.

    Love this.

  8. I am with you in regard to editing. I like to see a picture as it was taken, not one that has been photo-shopped. Reality is reality.

  9. I love the idea presented here – of embracing the imperfections that are unique to you when it comes to art. Those imperfections sometimes have a serendipitous beauty.

  10. “…the blur is my own…” Love these words.
    Having just created albums for my kids with historic family photos — black and whites and sepias of their great, and great-great, and great-great-great grandparents….on through childhood and up until they married — I do so appreciate photography. Funny — as I made these albums and went though our photos, the landscape photos, the places we went, while I enjoyed them, they took back seat to the ones with family in them. Amazing to see people from our past generations.
    Imperfections….hmmm….I’ve always said, the frightening (or good) thing about photography is that is really what we looked like at that moment in time, from that angle, in that light.
    Loved this poem.

  12. I tried to find just one line that jumped out at me and the challenge is in narrowing it down. This is a lovely image of life!

  14. Nice. That’s exactly how a photographer should see the world: through his or her own eyes.

  16. !! as an amateur photographer myself, i relate so hard to this. you illustrate the feeling of being behind the lens, capturing candid moments of life, so well.

  18. There is a beauty in imperfection…perhaps it is the imperfections that highlight honesty!
