Mind Pattern by DpressedSoul Mind Pattern by DpressedSoul
Everything's complicated,
even those things that seem flat
in their bleakness or sadness.

(Nick Hornby, English writer)

Partially inspired by David Lynch's photo series "Industrial Motives".
Main Station, Bochum (Germany).

It's great to see this one again after it's been in my memory
for the past couple of years. It holds up very well and the resolution
is much better than the one I stored in my brain (which seems to
have suffered some bit loss over time). 
This time around the thing that strikes me (one of the things that
disappeared in memory) is the delicate balance you've achieved
not with the elements of the composition (which work very much
like a logic circuit with appropriate symbolic/real elements), but 
with the darkness and light at top and bottom. That adds an
appropriate "weight" and allows for an orientation to the image,
which might otherwise be cause for insanity! 
(This image actually reminds me quite a lot of what one can do
when one progresses from shamatha to vipassana meditation.)
Cheers!

Thank you, kindly, for this elaborate comment. :iconbowplz:

I like the idea of a "gradient" that you've found in my picture, or balance as you've said. But I'm even more intrigued by your remark at the end of your comment, cause I'm actually trying to practice vipassana meditation. In which way does this image remind you of this meditation practice? I'm asking, because back when I took this picture I didn't know anything about vipassana and I actually took this photo intuitively, in a hurry, without being able to care much about composition and such.

When you begin vipassana/insight meditation, you generally begin
by following the breath and then "noting" and "scanning." In the
meditative state, you can unravel the usual tangle of associative
connections and determine their type and their trajectory (eventually
going all the way back to the initial stimulus of an associative thread,
which may be from one's childhood). 

For a photographer who is intimate with photographic process 
(whether it's digital or film), the parallel between
Buddha's idea of the five skandhas (the "heaps" that constitute one's
psychophysical self) and the emergence of an image might be quite
helpful. 

(I read your profile and noted your battle with MDD. Ironic that taking
pictures works better than meds, since it gets you outside in the sun
and working with light, which increases your serotonin levels, which
then modulate melatonin and control the whole serotonin-dopamine-
noadrenaline cascade!) 

The skandhas are: form --> sensation --> perception --> mental formations --> consciousness.
In vipassana, you begin as your psychophysical consciousness, and
can then unravel the mental formations down to perceptions and then
to sensations. Once you get to form, then the really interesting things
happen, since form is made from consciousness. :)

I think there are probably free 10-day vipassana retreats sponsored
by the Geonka group near you. I would recommend you try one if you
have the time. They are probably the best introduction to the whole
process. 


My own practice is more based on Nine Mountain Zen, but that also
incorporates vipassana as its basic meditative practice.

I hope this was not too long-winded!
:)

It's a real photo, not manipulated. The perspective distortion is due to the focal length.
