Form and symbology

The photos that most engage me are those that have some meaning or tell a story or are symbolic in some fashion. If they need to be explained then the viewer won't have the mindset to appreciate it in the same way. Well we all appreciate different things or even appreciate the same thing differently! Specific cultural perspectives will throw up a variety of art forms which other cultures may not be able to 'consume' easily. Symbolism is often rooted in religious beliefs and image types vary from culture to culture. Anyway, after all that, here's the offering. Some other shots from the day will appear on the site in due course.
