I feel I am lost for words to describe the photo of mine as it is not wordy and some people find it minimalistic. Silence, horizon, loneliness. I want to tell much with few words. To tell about the state of the space abandoned by humans but influenced by them. I do not want to bother spectators viewing my photos with excessive signs. A modern spectator is already overwhelmed with information and he cannot escape from this flow. On the other hand, my photo has absolutely no deep sense and does not require any words to describe it. A common snap made on the subconscious level. A part of concrete beam of a pier poking out of water or a ghost of a boat at long exposure near the horizon. What words could describe it? It is probably better to look at it without any words and that would be enough. And everyone will most probably find his own words.
