Night: Two If By Night
The Italian artist Giorgio Morandi painted minimalist elongated bottles in muted colors. And that’s how my neighbor’s lit bathroom window with its assortment of silhouetted bottles appeared to me, like a local Morandi.
I didn't use a long exposure, unfamiliar with my little camera's capabilities, and the flash kicked in, actually adding to the mystery of the images.
Shooting my own closed window reflected back two abstract shapes, nicely spectral. And where did that rich blue shape come from? It all just happened.
