If we put aside the functionality of the object itself, what will be our feelings about it? I am always addicted by the appearance of object before understanding for the existence of it.
In addition to the functionality of the object itself, I believe there would be many reasons for its existence. I communicate with them when the moment I was photographing and gazing, that was a kind of communication without speech. Photography reveals the mysteries of objects. When objects were framed under a certain temporal and space, the functionality of the objects had became less important, we only need to think carefully about the philosophy of the object itself.
I put aside its established impression and focus on the colors and structures of object for the moment I was framing the objects. I obsessed with the explosion of the shining and mysterious of objects at a moment rather than its originally reasons of existence, that only exist for just a second.
Not so much for the objects I am framing, I more feel like my lens succumb to the colors and structures of objects itself.
