that’s one photo that needs a lot of looking at – great distortion. Can’t work out what it is though, expect once I know I will say “of course!” :-)

A very cool picture! Depending on which way I look at it it looks different. Is it a tooth?
March 5, 2012 at 10:38 pm
It is so funny that you should say that… it is not a tooth although it was titled “Wisdom” (after the tooth) when I sculpted it. It is an alabaster sculpture.

Thank you, I enjoyed yours too.

I always skip to the comments while i wait for the photos to load and i must say wheni saw the photo, i agree with the tooth guess haha
Next guess is shadow cast over something, just dunno what. A puzzle! :)

It is a sculpture… thanks for stopping by and puzzling :)

black and white with shadow playing are always a favorite theme for me, and here you captured it beautifully. is that your own sculpture? wow, you are a very artistic and creative person :)

It looked like a tooth, then a chair. Perfect distortion! Love it.

It is a sculpture.

I love the shade and the B&W effect…
March 7, 2012 at 7:04 pm
thank you… i enjoyed yours as well.

Ahhh…It’s a sculpture…I was going to ask if it was a distorted image of a fist looking downwards the arm and shooting it (and distorting it) from the wrist. It’s funny how we all see things so differently :-) Very beautiful too, Imogen :-)
March 7, 2012 at 7:13 pm
So true… I’ve had many guesses as to what it is.
Thanks for dropping by. beebles.

great photo – i though it might be bright window light on the floor? it looks like you have created quite a discussion though, that is good.
March 8, 2012 at 6:30 pm
ty, I really enjoyed your bridge shot.
March 8, 2012 at 7:00 pm
Wow, THIS is a gorgeous picture on the topic. Kudos :-)
March 8, 2012 at 7:11 pm
I really enjoyed yours as well.

Distorted has been a great word for a photo challenge, hasn’t it!?
March 8, 2012 at 7:59 pm
Yes it has, lots of wonderful photos. Thanks for stopping by.

I can see the tooth, but the first thing i thought it was, was the top portion of a dress. Marilyn Monroe like…
March 8, 2012 at 11:39 pm
It’s an alabaster sculpture that I made years ago (in the shape of… well, nothing). Interesting and a first about the dress…. I can see it.

I stopped by to see your interpretation of distorted and opted to really look at this photo before reading any comments. Stumped, I scrolled down to see it was a sculpture. Brilliant. You are doubly gifted as an artist! The photograph was excellently taken. Good job.
BTW, never new that the string that holds shirt buttons is called beebles! If I ever win a million dollars because the answer to the question was beebles, I’ll throw you a load of cash!

I’m gonna hold you to that…
I liked that you really couldn’t tell what the thing was and instead of pointing it out, I just let people ponder on it for a while.
March 9, 2012 at 3:12 am
beautifully captured. I even can’t imagine what picture is that…I’m really distorted
March 9, 2012 at 6:30 am
Tyvm…I enjoyed yours too. Very neat and beautiful too.
March 9, 2012 at 8:21 am
Ooooh very nice…what is it (and as I typed that I felt a little bit like Homer Simpson!)?
Thanks for dropping by the blog! :)
March 9, 2012 at 8:30 am
lol it’s a sculpture that i made several years ago and I just happened to catch a good shot of it.
I enjoyed yours too, come back again.
March 9, 2012 at 8:38 am
Great lighting and shadow. Very well done.
March 9, 2012 at 11:16 am
Thank you so much.
March 9, 2012 at 1:44 pm
I’m glad that you revealed the “true identity’ of the distorted image. I like the sculpture very much and the title “Wisdom” seems so right for it. I connect alabaster with the ancient and the spiritual; and you’ve made a hard substance appear fluid. Some of the wisest people I know are just like that sculpture –solid, formidable, enduring, yet so in the flow of life.
March 9, 2012 at 2:18 pm
I can not take credit for the title, that belongs with my parents that thought it looked like a wisdom tooth from certain angles. Alabaster is a fun but messy medium and I would love to take another stab at it :)
March 9, 2012 at 3:03 pm
Absolutely adore the shape, form and shadowing of this. Beautiful!
March 9, 2012 at 7:58 pm
Thank you. I liked your crystal glass photos, you have a great eye.
March 10, 2012 at 1:46 am
Beautiful interpretation of the theme! Looks like a flowing cloth or a gloved fist. Can’t decide which one though :)
