Daily Deviation

Given 2012-10-10
Portrayed is the beauty in destruction, though there is a sense of horror as well. Shooting a photograph that is intense on many levels, ~JadeGreenbrooke captures pyromaniac. poignantly, composing materials in such a way that it contributes to the overall beauty of such a concept.

I can't tell if there is supposed to be a deeper meaning, if you intended one, or if it's just a really nice picture... but I seem to see some symbolism in the picture.

I feel like there is a reference to the Scholars endless journey here. Like you're saying something critical about the futility of the endless quest for knowledge and meaning with the contract of the burning book next to the pristine (and inflammable) pocket watch. The book seems to represent attempts by mortal men to record universal truth when the preservative within lies in the wielder of the pen and may not necessarily apply to the reader. While the watch, a representation of the flow of time and the infallible facts of the universe, remain even where the works of scholars and artists burn and corrode.

Then again, I did just get done writing a lot of BS literally interpretation papers, so maybe I'm looking way too deep into this. Amazing picture that does deserve the DD. Good show! :3
