First Haiga

First a definition, drawn from AHApoetry.com:

Haiga is a Japanese concept for simple pictures combined with poetry, usually meaning haiku…It can be watercolor paintings, photographs or collages with a poem of any genre that is integrated into the composition. Sometimes the poem is handwritten or it can be computer generated, depending on the artist’s taste.

Haiga is a combination of visual image and poetry, each to enrich the other and, ultimately, to lead the reader/viewer beyond what is presented toward what their own life experience suggests.

Here are my first first:

  4. My favorite is the one snowflake picture, with the splotchy bright primary colors. I also like the starkness of the soft steps picture, with the isolated people.

  13. I really enjoyed these – more than I thought I would! I just like the photos, and your haiku-ish comments. I especially like the first two pics (the windows and the window display one), and also the one about “Full Moon, my city…” And I love the one about the intermission. I think the pics and the text have equal weight, almost. Love it.

    It also makes me think I should get out more! I have to take Melanie to see the oculus!!

    I hope that you will continue to enjoy the summer and take such interesting “pics plus poetry!”

    Love to you and Bobbie.

    Thank you for the new blog. I enjoyed the many beautiful photographs.
    I couldn’t help but notice that Benny looks amazingly like one of my grandsons who is now 35 years old.

  16. Wow Richard, this is awesome and amazing. You’re so creative. Thanks for sharing it with me. It’s so personal, I see how I can relate it to some of my life’s experiences. I just came home after spending a week in Belmar, at the beach. See you soon at the Center.

    Regards.

  18. I always enjoy when the person behind the lens becomes attached to the camera allowing it to capture “life’s beauty”. You haven’t lossed the touch Dick. Be Well!

  19. Hi Richard:

    I never cease to be amazed at what you can do with the camera. You’re so talented. The last one about haiga was awesome. More so, because I’m not good at that, but I appreciate receiving all this from an expert. Thank you.

    See you soon at the center. Hopefully, it will be cooler soon.

    Regards.

    Huguette
