FAV -- spectacular view, beautifully captured! I like what @tracys has to say, but perhaps my instant liking of this image has to do with what @quietpurplehaze says since I am Japanese!

@jyokota

Interesting! Most of my own knowledge of Japanese art comes from van Gogh's love of it.

@quietpurplehaze
Van Gogh - yes, a great artist. From his pictures, you can learn a lot.
June 22nd, 2016  
@quietpurplehaze -- There's this concept known as "yohaku" (something that is more than simply negative space) that I am currently researching, and it involves "kuukan" a concept of intentionally open space, such as you might find in the work of some Japanese architects. For me, it has to do with how artists depict these concepts in picture books for children and the emotional impact and intellectual construct of the meanings implied and how leaving intentional spaces respect children's ability to enter those spaces and make sense of them rather than being faced with didacticism in text and illustrations..
June 22nd, 2016  
Once again wonderful layers, and perfect in b&w!
June 23rd, 2016  
utterly beautiful

@jyokota

Yohaku/kuukan - interesting and I shall now be looking at illustrations in children's books and thinking about them with this in mind. Thank you for the follow which I have reciprocated and I look forward to seeing your shots in the photo-stream.
June 23rd, 2016  
@quietpurplehaze - thx for paying attention . . . I just reread my own post on this and see that it's far too much information but I appreciate your listening. And thx for follow! I look forward to more interactions. And, I promise not to be so verbose always.
June 23rd, 2016  
So very beautiful Jerome!!!

@jyokota

I don't find you verbose. Perhaps it's because I myself tend to go into things in detail - I like to know!

Dear Junko!

Thank you for your remarks about "yohaku"! I am delighted that you are thinking about design principles also. I feel this is an important aspect of design: reflect and systematic research. Such structures are important - for any musician, it is understood to have knowledge of musical structures. How's he going to otherwise compose? Even an unparalleled genius like Mozart received corresponding lessons (his father was a strict teacher). In the use of color and form is this insight curiously less represented.
Yes, there is in designing with color and form a sort of "craft" - rules, structures, the wise and capable people have discovered.
However: The knowledge alone is not enough. Images that are only made "cold" according to certain rules, are empty, do not touch. It's about a balance between experienced and thoughtful. I think that this holistic approach promises success. you can learn whatsoever by the conscious and reflective viewing of masterpieces in art. The Japanese ink drawings of Zen Buddhists are such an example.

From "yokaku" are you talking about. The beauty of leftover white. Not everything is said, but some things remain in the hint. This is a synonym for life, which also can not be explained to the last detail (even if the science it claims for itself to complete). It remains something mysterious. Furthermore is in Japanese art the criteria of simplicity and economy, respect for the peculiarity of things. They are very beautiful ideas which also concern myself very.
June 23rd, 2016  
@jerome -- you give much to consider, so i will be thinking about all this some more. But for now, I can say that yohaku is more than the leftover white, beautiful as it may be. You use the word "leftover" which implies almost afterthought. Rather, it is in balance with the concept of "kuukan" as planned, and the space carved out. It is the presence of space. I'm not being very clear yet but i will think of this some more as well.
Your analysis with craft vs form is so true, and many times I find myself liking an image for which I cannot articulate a structured reason. Ah, Mozart . . . soon it is time for the summer opera festivals to begin.

@jyokota

Dear Junko,

the longer I am with you in conversation, the more interesting it is to me. Unfortunately my English is not so good that I do not make mistakes in demanding discussions. "Leftover" is not a good term. I meant no case that it remains - in the sense of "too much" or "superfluous". Not in a good music is a sound "too much", not in a good poem is a word "too much" - also in a good picture there nothing "too much".

Very, very much there is to say, I believe, for image composition. I would be happy if we continue to stay in touch. My biggest problem with this is my inadequate English. I hope I find the right words for what I mean.

You come from Japan?
June 24th, 2016  
@jerome -- I'm sorry I never noticed your lovely comment to me above! I have been away from 365 while traveling and am just coming back from my summer away. I am from Japan, yes, and I was back there this summer to return my mother's ashes to her homeland and to take a family trip throughout the places significant in her life.
You communicate very well in English, and spectacularly through your photography!
