strangely this is continuation of "This too will pass" . Meaning many theories and models on how/why all this happened. But nature moves on without knowing these theories.

Should Nature photography always show pleasant things ? Should not art poke at those difficult and unpleasant issues !!

Interesting point Ganesh. I had made a list of factors influencing "Visual Assimilation " 1. Deep recessed memories 2. Premodial Fight, Flight, Food or F.... response 3. Cultural Symbolism 4. Brain Reconstruction 5. Brain assumptions and optical illusions 6. Expected behavior and conditioning 7. Current emotional state 8.Short-term memory and associations The interesting part is some of this can be controlled to create a specific experience Thoughts

thanks, Ramesh. On another note, I would say as a departure from reality this is no different from the Hornbill image ( you were present at the scene). Your views?

Love the tone and texture. Yes rocks are silent witness to the changes on this planet and also are our connection to the universe at large.....some of them millions even billions of years old.

thanks all. Nice discussion. I am tempted to connect RD's and Ganesh's point @ RD in some ways can we say the mind is a "meaning making machine " can we take the forward as say " truth is personal reality " My truth may be a lie for someone else also my own truth may be a lie sometime later. My truth in a dream is a lie when i wake up At least "Truth is a Lie " must be true for all :) In a lighter vein ..... " A Statistician , Mathematician and Logic person were looking at a black Goat in Scotland... All goats in Scotland are black was Statisticians conclusion...we do not know that but this goat is black was Mathematician opinion. We do not know about that ( Logic person ) with the information we have we can only say this side of the Goat is black"

thanks both. Good question Ramesh. Here is my take So, two part answer 1. Artistic intent……I am questioning/exploring the assumptions the brain is making in assembling and making meaning out of those 6 shapes. The black space in between gives no info that the shapes are from one single object. Based on my title , past memories it is a logical conclusion but assumptions nevertheless • Also struck me that if we program a software to recognize a bird image among other inputs we would ask it learn that these basic shapes (there would be number of other inputs ) arranged in this way is 90% a bird …you get the drift At this stage for me artistic intent and connect is supreme….photo / digital art does not really matter. I could as well do this on a photocopying machine if that gives me the desired results …process would be important only for repeatability and to apply to other objects and circumstances 2. Having said that Photo to Digital art. Mostly the boundary condition of what is in and what is out is personal with a lot of common ground in the basics. So here is my take on it being a photograph ( but I would not over defend keeping point 1 in mind ) a. I was there, the bird was there, was taken with a camera b. Had an imagination that the whites tips could be brought out this way while making the exposure c. No elements added or taken away d. Only played with contrast and shadows ( actually just processed on RAW no even PS ) But would definitely invite others to give their thoughts. No worries let’s have an open discussion
