Photo Art Friday: Figure/s

Bonnie’s challenge this week was to incorporate “Figure/s” into our photographic artwork. According to Wikipedia Figure may refer to:

A shape, drawing, or representation
Figure, wood appearance
Musical figure, distinguished from musical motif
Shaping a mirror on a reflective telescope
Noise figure, in telecommunication
Dance figure, an elementary dance pattern
Vivian Davis Figures, Democratic member of the Alabama State Senate
A person’s figure, human physical appearance

here is my interpretation


I used 2 of my own photos, taken on our recent trip to Italy, blended in darken mode and set the opacity to 72%. The figure is carved into a door dated 1738 at La Scarzuola (see my post about our visit there). The overlaid Islamic-influenced geometrical pattern carved stonework is on display in the Museum of works of art belonging to the duomo of Pisa.
