Smoke and Mirrors

Smoke and Mirrors

This is the shot of a cloud, Other than using a blue filter and turning it on its side (and most obviously converting it to black and white and cropping) we are presented with an image which at first seems a little odd. Quite a few people have not really found much in this abstract image of a cloud. Yet if one looks, It becomes quite a complex abstract image which hosts at least 3 different images.

If you look closely enough you will see a patial skull, a fish, a dog and a fox's head. There might also be an image of a human face. This for me represent the closest idea of an abstract image, the ability to find meaning within what is quite often an odd collection of shapes.
