Here's an excellent example of taking an image and turning it into a rumination on the human condition.
The stillness and emptiness of a rowboat on a shore of Loch Maree. Does its stationary position represent hope of future travels, the end of travels once pursued, or does it represent reality? What's reality? Reality is void of hope. It simply is what it is. If the rowboat's stationary position...half on stable land and half on the icy darkness of a Scottish Loch represents reality, then the beauty of this photo is nothing more than delusion.
