One of the ways I cope with most abstract art, without the need to revert to my usual a) what IS it? and b) yes, but what does it mean? is to remember how twisted nature is - not so many straight lines there - and the picture of the rocks and the branch works well for me: I like it because of what it is, I don't need it to be anything else.

That image spoke to me as a sort of nature-made dreamcatcher, branches woven together like that.

I tend to not alter things. I tend to shoot what I find, or see, or discover. Some photographers stage things, or set the scene, or move things around till they create the arrangement they like. I am not averse to that as a process, as I do make land-art sculptures in situ, but I tend to think of photography as discovery. Usually I don't change what I'm shooting, but I will move around it till I find the angle I want to shoot it from.
