This post is my seventh entry for the LWRDPC 52-Week Theme Photo Challenge, and my theme selection is #20, Interpretation of Art.

For me, this pattern gave me a strong sense of pareidolia. The wear pattern in this luggage carousel at DFW Airport reminded me of the figure in Edvard Munch’s Skrik (The Scream). Add the generic angst from that to the existential despair of being stuck behind the metal of a luggage carousel, forever, and that’s the photo. At least for me. Your mileage may vary.

Tehcnical photography stuff: Panasonic GF2 camera, Navitar 50mm f/0.95 (I don’t think I’m going to get tired of writing that spec), probably around ISO 400 and f/2.8 or so.

  • I think I can make out the “Scream”. Clever shot.

  • Thanks, Trudie. I took some shots of the carousel because I was thinking in terms of the “Patterns” theme. After seeing it come up on my computer monitor, the “face” asserted itself.
