Marbled Rock

Marbled Rock, Seongsan, 2019

I like this photograph because it is quiet. Nothing is happening except a slight bend of white mineral in the boulder. It’s a lesson in how to live – quiet and sturdy amongst the entanglements of life.

  1. Apparently, Confucious said (and I paraphrase): Life is simple, we make it complicated.
    or something like that.
    That looks like a streak of calcite – there’s enormous complexity in that photo – think of all the insect life and plant processes and geological work that bought that boulder to that spot . .
    You could explore it further – think about some of Minor White’s simple/complex treatments of things . .

    1. Thanks for the comments. Despite my head being full of them, I know little about rocks. I could go back and explore the boulder some more. It’s not going anywhere (I hope) and every few weeks it will look a bit different. Or, rather, its surroundings will be slightly different. I’m not sure I can get close at the moment because it’s in a riverbed and there’s been rain.
