Yesterday we explored moments in sand, today we started with exploring moments on the street and with leaves in particular. Fallen leaves portray rather literally decay in nature.I had a lovely day today and I thought I had it all figured out: I thought I understood what the difference was between that and moments.
However, looking back at my selection of 15 photos together with the other pupils, I realized that was not the case. There were a lot of that pictures, which I will not show here to make it not confusing for the reader. And I had not shot one visual haiku, unfortunately.
The components of a visual haiku would be:
1. heaven principle: the space. In yesterday's case that was sand.
2. earth principle: the moment
3. man principle: something extra, something unexpected or funny
Like I said, I didn't come across any visual haikus, but I wrote another one:
the musician is playing a tune
autumn leaves on the ground
the bench feels hard
This footstep is almost audible according to our teacher.
Today was interesting, fun and instructive all at the same time. Writing a haiku is definitely something one can train, photographing a haiku is a totally different matter.
