THINGS MOST PEOPLE DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO, IMAGE DESCRIPTION
Title: THINGS MOST PEOPLE DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO #17, Edit C, on 3 September 2015.
→ This is a photo of the Malaysian flag, with the design of a temple’s decorative metal gate showing through the translucent fabric of the flag—the image is backlit.
Series: THINGS MOST PEOPLE DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO.
Series Years:  2015.
Style:  ENVIRONMENTAL STILL LIFE Photography.
Study Of: “THINGS MOST PEOPLE DO NOT PAY ANY ATTENTION TO” along the streets of Penang.  These may be mundane, old, and decaying elements, or things thrown away on the street that happen to land and sit in a particular way that becomes an interesting scene to me.   This is a somewhat macroscopic, environmental still life photography perspective where the parts of the subjects, the form, the texture, the color, and the design, are the main subjects in the images…the objects in the photos lend a hand to the over all structure of the images but don’t tell the whole story of what I find interesting in the photographs.

    1. This is a good one with layers of reality. First of all, why is the Malaysian flag resembling the American? … and then the creature, most likely an Indian deity, emerging from or superimposing the national symbol. Very telling.

      1. I always wondered the same about the similarity. And, you bring up a good point: the country long ago had a big Hindu influence, so it was kind of an unconscious lucky coincidence that the flags were hung on the gate as they were.
